Bring main README file up to date. Change all instances of PREFIX to ${prefix} to
differentiate from shell variables, moved all references to conf files to
${prefix}/etc/ports, finally removed some still lingering pre-autoconf days comments.

What else? Ohh, right... should we remove mention of FreeBSD?
