archivers/lha: diskfile and home page outdated [fix in wip]

I noticed that the distfile from archivers/lha is no longer available
from the listed location, and the home page is also gone.

I located another version of lha, which is even still maintained:
(My own copy of the distfile was dated Dec 15  2000).

I've put a replacement package into wip/lha, because it's not an obvious
drop in replacement: since it's maintained, it differs from the previous
version. At the least, it has been reformatted somewhat.

I checked all patches and as far as I could see, all of them were
already applied, or obsolete, except for one which changes a call to
utime(3) to utimes(2).

I tried the result to extract a couple of .lha files I have around, and
it seemed to work.

There is no clear indiction of a version number, nor are there nice
github release tags, so I've based my package on the most recent git
commit. I'm afraid I don't read Japanese, so I can't say if there is
maybe some clarity about this in a readme file.

Any reason not to overwrite the existing archivers/lha with this, soon?
