NEW: lang/pypy

Laurence Tratt
I've updated the port for lang/pypy in openbsd-wip[1] based on comments from
sthen@ and others. I think this is now ready to be put in the tree, but not
linked to the build (the build gobbles up too much memory for the current
bulk build port machines). It is currently only for amd64; it should be
possible to bootstrap it onto i386 if someone has the motivation.

As a quick reminder:

"PyPy is a fast, compliant alternative implementation of the Python language
(equivalent to CPython 2.7.2)." For "pure" Python 2.7 programs, PyPy speeds
up execution by a factor of 5.5 on average [2].
