Acmetool utility port for the FreeBSD

I am actively using Lets Encrypt certificates for my private and business projects. Initially i been using official Python client to obtain them, and it was all kind of possible problems. At some point i migrated to the Acmetool client which works perfectly and allows me to maintain hundreds of the certificates with a minimal efforts. This is feature list from the web site:

✅ Zero-downtime autorenewal
✅ Supports any webserver
✅ Fully automatable
✅ Single-file dependency-free binary
✅ Idempotent
✅ Fast setup

Only problem for me was lack of the FreeBSD port – yes, you can grab FreeBSD binaries from the author web site, install them somewhere to the /opt/, but its not a Jedi Path. So i had to create FreeBSD port, which after few months of aging was finally accepted to the tree. There are small changes in the port compared to the author build – paths are FreeBSD-style and builds should be repeatable (i hope, at least). As usual – feel free to send me PR-s, bugreports and suggestions.

Lets Encrypt!
