Update the COPYRIGHT file to include FreeBSD's compilation copyright
by the pseudonymous author "The FreeBSD Project." This is long overdue. I've left the 4.4BSD copyright information intact since much of our code base is derived from 4.4BSD-Lite. Prodded by: phk on more occasions than can be counted.
