Patch: porters guide chapter 2.2, item no. 23 (again)

Edward-2
Hi,

I thought pkg_create(1) is worth mentioning in the porting checklist so
that a new porter would know where to find more information on PLIST
variables & annotations that's useful to the PLIST file.

The below patch appended the sentence "PLIST variables/annotations can
be found in pkg_create(1)." to the second paragraph of item 23, chapter
2.2 of Porting guide[1].

Regards,
Edward.

It is indeed strange that the porting guide fails to mention
the pkg_create(1) manual at all.

Fair enough, that seems the natural place to mention it,
so i have committed a tweaked version of your patch.

Yours,
