Summary

Move Objective-C ports to the v2 GNUstep ABI.

    
* GNUstep-back does not work with lld, so mark it to use Gold (BFD LD
  doesn't seem able to link Objective-C things).
* Turn off some annoying debug logs in GNUstep back, which generate
  several messages per second when you move the mouse.  These should
  never have been enabled in a release build anyway.
* Downgrade Cenon to 4.0.2.  This was the last version to actually work
  with GNUstep (the later ones use XCode >= 5 .xib files, which GNUstep
  can't parse).
* Update gorm to git head. The current release doesn't work with the
  new Objective-C ABI, but -head has the patches to fix it.
* Update PikoPixel and add it to the gnustep-app meta-package.
* Update GNUstep -gui to the latest release.
* Update gnumail and pantomime to the latest release and fix a linking
  error with the new ABI.
* Update GNUstep FTP to the latest version.

It's been a while since I made any ports commits, so review would be appreciated.

This depends on https://reviews.freebsd.org/D18672 being committed.
