Speed­ing up the pack­age depen­dency list creation

Stephen Montgomery-Smith posted some patches for bsd.port.mk to the ports mail­inglist to speed up the pack­age depen­dency list cre­ation. He did cut down the time from about 2min30sec (pack­age depen­dency list of gnome2, tested on my sys­tem) to about 15-18sec. I enhanced this and now the time is down to about 12sec and a lot less pro­grams to exe­cute in the call (may be impor­tant on slow systems).

The patch for bsd.port.mk in my ports-patches direc­tory con­tains more than only those improve­ments, the other part is not sub­ject to sub­mis­sion yet.

If nobody finds some prob­lems with the patch I will send it to GNATS and assign it to port­mgr for inclu­sion into one of the next exper­i­men­tal ports builds.
