bash-completion: support port abbreviated commands

Port: bash-completion


With bash-completion, I can type port contents z then press tab twice to see the names of all the ports I have installed that begin with "z". However if I use an abbreviated form like port cont z then pressing tab any number of times just beeps.

This first needs to be supported in port usage cont expanding the abbreviation to the full command. Although implementing the check for a unique prefix in the bash completion itself could work, I feel it would just duplicate the functionality that is already in port(1). I agree this should work, anyway.
