[NEW PORT] archivers/php-brotli: PHP Extension for Brotli

Brotli is a generic-purpose lossless compression algorithm that compresses
data using a combination of a modern variant of the LZ77 algorithm, Huffman
coding and 2nd order context modeling, with a compression ratio comparable
to the best currently available general-purpose compression methods. It is
similar in speed with deflate but offers more dense compression.

This is the Brotli Extension for PHP

^ why does it need brotli sources again? -- brotli should be available from the libdepends, right?

Also, it is not referenced anywhere here except for the LICENSE. If it is only for the license file, it probably is not worth it.

So mat and tcberner were correct, brotli sources are only needed if not
building against source. Since we are building with --with-libbrotli
we are using the system libraries and don't need the source.

Forgot to update distinfo, corrected.
