New port www/mirrorselect

Hi,

Mirrorselect is an HTTP backend service that selects the pkg(8) mirrors according to their "distances" to the client.  I've written mirrorselect in Go to achieve the pkg(8) mirror auto-balance for DragonFly BSD.  It should just work for FreeBSD as well and I hope it can be helpful to others :D

Cheers,
Aaron
