I also prefer 0-clause-bsd.  OSI is inconsistent about their short
forms, and we don't use them anyway.  (To be fair, the point about 0BSD
not being a derivative of the others is interesting, but the big thing
is that we align with license authorities and avoid confusion.)

I would prefer not to touch during freeze, especially since
this is a recent issue for a single package.

Given that isc-AUTHOR is not in, I think it's ok to rename it
to 0-clause-bsd and adjust the LICENSE line of sysutils/bfs.  Post
freeze it can get added to and the pkg_install config.
