I have committed the DEPRECATED change to *setiathome (it did not seem worth 
it to me to make the other changes) and their direct dependencies.  Cyrille 
had asked that his ports be returned to ports@ due to lack of access to a 
FreeBSD machine right now. 

I have not done enough investigation to find out if the other ports (and 
the following: gkrellmseti ksetisaver ksetispy ksetiwatch p5-SETI-Stats) 
will stop working as well.

Over to originator to see if the other ports also need to be deprecated.
