fish @1.23.1_5 +xsel: should depend on xsel port instead of installing its own

Port: fish

Description (last modified by larryv (Lawrence Velázquez))

fish +xsel currently installs ${prefix}/bin/xsel and declares a conflict with MacPorts’ xsel (see #38061). The fish port should be changed to use MacPorts’ xsel and never install its own.

I think fish just builds and installs its own copy of xsel; there’s no linking or anything. So MacPorts users can just install the xsel port at their leisure.

I’ve removed +xsel (and, by extension, the conflict with xsel) in r103145.

Instead of just going and removing it right away, how about temporarily changing the variant so all it does is display a message telling users that it's deprecated and to just install the xsel port instead? Then after a while it can be removed entirely. I just know this is how some other ports handle keeping old variants for compatibility, and it would make sense to do so here, too.

I added a note about xsel in r103154.
