New port astro/py-ephem 3.7.7.0

For more than 12 years now there is astro/pyephem in the ports. The recent update of the sources changed the naming scheme from pyephem to ephem[1][2]. The version 3.7.7.0 in the ports is only a stub, which needs ephem as a dependency[3].

Because several ports in the FreeBSD ports tree have astro/pyephem as a dependency, the author Brandon Rhodes suggests to hold pyephem to direct to ephem from there. Following this advice, I added astro/py-ephem as a dependency in astro/pyephem and created a new port for ephem, astro/py-ephem. The naming scheme follows other Python ports.

@wen: In the new port astro/py-ephem[4] I signed in as the maintainer. I would be completely fine, if you instead want to be the maintainer, of course.

[3] Description section of PKG-INFO:l9-17

   "This package is a stub
    that contains no Python code,
    but lists ``ephem`` as its install requirement
    in case any old projects depend on this ``pyephem`` package name.
    New projects are encouraged to directly require the main package,
    which can be found at: https://pypi.org/project/ephem/ "

Take this to understand the rename and figure out the best strategy
