portstree patch with hotfix

A feature added in 6.18 causes problems: when trying to use all files in --getmaildir, getmail will choke on oldmail-* files, which are highly likely to be present.

Since this is the new default behaviour for running getmail without any arguments, this change is very likely to break many installations.

This patch is the fix committed upstream as 9d15886, fast-tracked into the ports tree here instead of waiting for the bugfix release.

Thanks.  Changing this to 'fixed' since we did add a fix even though this release was short-lived.
