It fits in textproc category

Hi Xavier,

Thanks for the new port. Parse-EDID is used as a dependency by other Perl apps [1]:

- FusionInventory-Agent_2.6
- Task-FusionInventory-1.00

The first one is already in our ports tree as net-mgmt/p5-FusionInventory-Agent :)

[1] https://metacpan.org/dist/Parse-EDID/requires

Currently net-mgmt/p5-FusionInventory agent uses internal EDID data under share/fusioninventory/edid.ids. Maybe this could be replaced by the new port? I have added the maintainer of the port, freebsd@simweb.ch.

ATM, I am testing your patch on Poudriere and it looks good so far ;)

BTW, I had to add the missing URL in pkg-descr, no need for a new patch.

Slightly corrected tabs in Makefile, and added URL in pkg-descr.

Committed, thanks :)
