commit cfd2ea50475529df407eb83b8e3562abf74c1c59

    Update README and NEWS for ports directory removal.
    This patch updates README to remove a mention of the ports directory.
    It also adds a NEWS item for the merge of ports into the main sysdeps
    tree (I think it's NEWS-worthy, although not strictly a user-visible
    Other remaining ports references to resolve: a comment in
    manual/signal.texi (not giving a literal path, but maybe should change
    anyway); a comment in (path should be updated);
    scripts/ (appears to date back to ports being a
    separate repository).
    	* README: Do not mention ports directory.
