Remove www/weblint?

Michael McConville-3
Currently, it fails when called, like this:

defined(%hash) is deprecated at /usr/local/bin/weblint line 844.
        (Maybe you should just omit the defined()?)
Can't locate newgetopt.pl in @INC (@INC contains: /home/mike/.opam/system/lib/perl5 /home/mike/.opam/system/lib/perl5 /home/mike/.opam/system/lib/perl5 /usr/local/libdata/perl5/site_perl/amd64-openbsd /usr/libdata/perl5/site_perl/amd64-openbsd /usr/local/libdata/perl5/site_perl /usr/libdata/perl5/site_perl /usr/libdata/perl5/amd64-openbsd/5.20.2 /usr/local/libdata/perl5/amd64-openbsd/5.20.2 /usr/libdata/perl5 /usr/local/libdata/perl5 .) at /usr/local/bin/weblint line 508.

This seems to be because it uses a deprecated getopt pod which was
finally removed.

The author's website, listed as the MASTER_SITES, has changed to:

http://www.cpan.org/authors/id/N/NE/NEILB/

However, it's no longer available there, which makes me think he's
abandoned it.

It seems that there have been few or no functional changes to the port
since at least 2003. The best I can tell, the latest release (1.020) was
in 2000.

Thoughts?

It's dead. The replacement is p5-HTML-Lint, we should add a quirks entry
and an @pkgpath marker in p5-HTML-Lint so that existing users get upgraded.
