 claws-mail: update to version 3.17.4, configuration, dependencies

 This PR can be seen as a temporary (hopefully more palatible) alternative
 to previous PR3527 that
 completely disabled building of the fancy plugin due to the dependency on
 deprecated webkit-gtk.

 By default, this new PR disables plugins fancy and new litehtml_viewer
 (which requires Google's
 libgumbo not yet ported to MacPorts). The improper dependency on
 webkit2-gtk has been removed
 and a +fancy variant is added which correctly adds the dependency on
 webkit-gtk and enables the
 build of the fancy plugin.  This eliminates the previously reported
 behavior of opportunisticaly building
 the fancy plugin if webgit-gtk happened to be installed and requires the
 user to make a conscious decision
 to build the plugin.

 Note that progress is being made (slowly) on the upstream gtk3 branch
 which not only updates claws-mail to gtk3
 but ports the fancy plugin to webkit2-gtk3.
