update netsurf port to 3.10_1

GTK will not use a custom supplied gettext function with Builder xml ui on FreeBSD, which causes the the preferences dialog to have translation keys instead of English, etc, readable text. Netsurf uses a translation scheme with key/value pairs in a gzipped file instead of using gettext po files, so when the ui is loaded by GTK the calls to translate using gettext() fail because it cannot find the po translation files.

This fix generates a language specific ui for this dialog during buildtime so on-the-fly translation is not required on the preferences dialog. The program selects the ui file which corresponds to their locale setting in env.

LGTM. Will commit once the ports tree has converted to git (which we are in the process in).
