update beamer to 3.57

Our latex-beamer package is lagging behind (nearly three years), and the old upstream at bitbucket vanished recently.
Attached updates latex-beamer to 3.57 and has the package point to the new upstream location at github. Unfortunately, our tex packages are too old, we cannot use the l3build script - so we have to install everything by hand.
Package passes poudriere, and beamer still processes my slides (which are rather simple, but that's about all I have).
Comment 1 John W. O'Brien 2019-11-16 22:57:01 UTC
Thank you for working on this.

portlint wants DISTVERSIONPREFIX above CATEGORIES, and the addition of LICENSE:


We can also remove USES=tar:bz2 because GitHub supplies a tar.gz (see distinfo).

I hope you're sure about the licenses - I'm not, I think the licensing situation on the latex related stuff is slightly confusing.

(In reply to Christoph Moench-Tegeder from comment #3)

I could be missing something, but LICENSE.md [0] seems reasonably clear. The code is under a dual license, GNU Public License 2 or later, or LaTeX Project Public License 1.3c or later.

It's a little less clear how to handle the docs, but my thinking is that a) LPPL 1.3c or later is one of the options; b) the port variables are informative, not normative; and c) while perhaps not perfect, this is still an improvement over specifying no license.
