Retire the ca-roots ports, which expired long ago.

The port is deprecated since it is not supported by the FreeBSD
Security Officer anymore. The reason for this is that the ca-roots
port makes promises with regard to CA verification which the current
Security Officer (and deputy) do not want to make.

For people who need a general root certificate list see the
security/ca_root_ns, but note that the difference in guarantees with
regard to which CAs are included in ca_root_ns vs. ca-roots. The
ca_root_ns port basically makes no guarantees other than that the
certificates comes from the Mozilla project.

Note that the ca-roots MOVED file entry on purpose does not point at
ca_root_ns due to the change in CA guarantees.
