Deprecation patch

The FreeBSD port audio/shairport is no longer maintained. The URL in pkg-descr (https://github.com/albertz/shairport) states:

Airtunes emulator. official repo moved! now at <https://github.com/abrasive/shairport> https://github.com/abrasive/shairport

Looking at that URL states:

Airtunes emulator! Shairport is no longer maintained. http://www.mafipulation.org

I suggest to deprecate the port with a 3 month notice and point at a well maintained fork (audio/shairport-sync.)

New revision: 448850
URL: https://svnweb.freebsd.org/changeset/ports/448850

  Port is officially no longer maintained upstream.

  There is a very well maintained GitHub fork also available in the ports tree.
  Deprecate this port with a 3 months notice and point at the alternative.
