    www-apps/cgit: Replace src_prepare with src_configure
    After we move python_setup to pkg_setup, src_prepare just configuring
    cgit.conf, which seems like an appropriate task for src_configure.
    Also add Python 3.11 compatibility, switch to EAPI=8, and move
    doc-generating deps to BDEPEND.
