Log message:
ucon64: update to 2.2.0.

With much help from upstream to get this compiling nicely on NetBSD.

2.2.0
- added (GB) --gp2bmp convert Game Boy Printer data (produced by --xmccl) to
BMP (by dbjh; based on version of gblnk (by Chris McCormick) improved by
Difegue. Many thanks to Difegue for providing me with Game Boy Printer data.
Thanks to Martin Eyre for documenting his findings about Game Boy Printer
commands)
- added (SNES) --sminis=ID convert *.srm (SRAM) file to SNES/Super Famicom
Classic Mini (hakchi2) format for game with identifier ID (by dbjh)
- added (SNES) --smini2srm convert SNES/Super Famicom Classic Mini (hakchi2)
SRAM data to *.srm (SRAM) file (by dbjh)
- added support for NetBSD (by dbjh; thanks to Thomas Klausner for his help)
- updated support for OpenBSD (64-bit) (by dbjh)
- updated (all) made -o also work for --rrom, --r83 and --rjoliet, just like
the other rename options (--rdat, --rl and --ru) (by dbjh)
- updated (SNES) improved reliability of GDSF communication for PCs with a
parallel port that supports ECP (built-in or PCIe parallel port card). At last.
It is essential to correctly specify ecr_offset for this to work (by dbjh; many
thanks to Mystic_Merlin for testing)
- updated (SNES) improved --ufosd by adding specific support for 10 and 12 Mbit
HiROMs and implementing a generic way to set the SRAM mapping bytes (by dbjh;
thanks to Revenant for the information and Trenton_net for testing)
- added (SNES) --xufosd send ROM to Super UFO Pro 8 SD. Be sure to use a tool
like Zadig to add libusb-0.1 (libusb-win32) support (by dbjh; thanks to
Revenant for the information and Trenton_net and Revenant for testing)
- updated (SNES) added NTSC/PAL fix for Soul Blazer F/G and Super Metroid E (by
dbjh; thanks to Mystic_Merlin)
- added (SNES) work-around for using the Game Doctor SF6 protocol for parallel
ports that do not support reading from the Control register. It is good enough
to at least allow dumping saver data and SRAM. To enable the new functionality
assign a value other than 0 to the variable gd6_send_byte_delay. See the FAQ
question 55 for details (by dbjh; many thanks to NorQue and Mystic_Merlin for
testing)
- updated (SNES) made --gd3 specify a pass-through mapping for LoROM DSP games
(by dbjh)
- updated (SNES) added proper recognition of Pro Fighter headers of LoROM DSP
games with 2, 8 or 32 kB SRAM (by dbjh)
- updated (SNES) added interpretation of remaining part of GD3 header (DRAM and
SRAM mapping) to --dbuh (by dbjh)
- updated (SNES & Genesis) fixed split file detection for formats other than
(M)GD and MGH which I broke in 2.1.0 (by dbjh)
- added (all) --split=N split ROM in parts of N Bytes (including possible
header). This is a generic file splitting option. Use -s, optionally in
combination with --ssize=SIZE to split files for use with a specific console or
backup unit (by dbjh)
- added (SNES) support for Super Magicom/SMC IC2 file format. This format is
used by several ancient backup units, including the Twin Supercom, Future
Supercom Pro.9 and UFO Super Drive PRO 6 HYPER VERSION in order to run HiROM
games up to 16 Mbit. Use --ic2 to convert a file to Super Magicom/SMC IC2
format (by dbjh; thanks to Mystic_Merlin for info and testing)
- updated (SNES) fixed bug in --ufo that caused it to produce incorrect headers
for games that do not use SRAM (by dbjh; thanks to Mystic_Merlin for feedback
and testing)
- updated (SNES) fixed bug in -j for files in UFO format smaller than or equal
to 8 Mbit (by dbjh)

Log message:
ucon64: update to 2.1.0.

2.0.1
- updated (GB) internal name is 15 characters long only for GBC games. For GB
and SGB games it's 16 characters long. Updated ROM info and -n (by dbjh; thanks
to Anna Kubisty for reporting the problem and info)
- added (all) --xreset reset parallel port (by dbjh; thanks to Cyan Helkaraxe
for the idea)
- added (GBA) --sc convert to Super Card (CF to GBA Adapter)/SCZ; enables
"Saver patch", "restart to Menu" and "Real Time \ 
Save" (creates SAV and SCI
template) (by NoisyB)
- updated (NES) added support for new iNES header. Now --ntsc & --pal work also
for iNES files (by dbjh)

anymore. As far as we know, no backup unit produces or is able to handle
interleaved SMS or Game Gear files (by dbjh; thanks to Matthias for verifying
this with his SMD)
- added (SNES) --idnum=NUM make --gd3 produce file names where first file has
numerical identifier NUM, next NUM + 1, etc. (by dbjh)

on the PCE-PRO (by dbjh; many thanks to Bryan Lama for reporting this bug and
for testing)
- updated (PCE) --xpce now correctly handles 3 and 4 Mbit games that are part
of a multi-game file (by dbjh; thanks to Bryan Lama for testing)
- updated (PCE, Genesis & SMS/Game Gear) --multi now produces more efficient
multi-game files which results in shorter upload times (by dbjh)
- updated (PCE, Genesis, SMS/Game Gear & SNES) all transfer options for ToToTEK
devices now check for the presence of the device (only the upload ROM options
used to do the check) (by dbjh)
- added (all) -r process subdirectories recursively (by NoisyB and dbjh)
- updated (SNES) improved reliability of --xgd3 (should reduce the frequency of
"File Size Error !") (by dbjh)
- added --help[=WHAT] WHAT=long,pad,dat,patch,backup,disc. Help output is now
smaller (by NoisyB)
- added (SNES) --mksrm create *.srm (SRAM) file with size based on ROM

Voswinkel for sending a patch)

2.0.2
- updated (SNES) --xqd16 can be aborted by pressing q on Mac OS X too (by dbjh;
many thanks to David Voswinkel for testing and sending a patch)
- updated (NES) --gg works properly for games using a mapper (by dbjh; thanks
to eadmaster for sending a bug report)
- updated (NES) --gg no longer accepts 6 digit codes. It lists all
corresponding 8 digit codes instead when given a 6 digit code (by dbjh)
- updated (Genesis) --gg modifies 2 bytes instead of 1 (by dbjh; thanks to
eadmaster for reporting the issue and testing)
- updated (Genesis) --ggd, --gge and --gg correctly handle Genesis patch values
(by dbjh; thanks to eadmaster for reporting the issue and testing)
- updated (SMS/Game Gear & GB) --gg can use the check byte (by dbjh)

2.0.3
- updated (NDS) fixed stupid mistake in reported device capacity (by dbjh)
- updated (NDS) fixed issue that caused ROMs with an incorrect SNES backup unit
header to be detected as Nintendo DS ROM dumps (by dbjh)
- updated (SNES) MinGW and Visual C++ ports can display colors again for --dbuh
(instead of ANSI escape sequences) (by dbjh)
- updated (SNES) fixed edge case in code of --dbuh for headered ROMs that are
not recognised as being for a specific backup unit (by dbjh)
- updated (all) upgraded unzip to version 1.01e. Did the same for libdiscmage
(by dbjh)
- updated (N64) fixed problem in Cygwin port of libcd64 with loading I/O
drivers (by dbjh)
- updated (all) fixed --hfind, --hfindr, --dfind and --dfindr, which I broke in
2.0.1. Also, 0 is no longer a wildcard and can be properly searched for.
Improved handling of non-printable characters (by dbjh)

2.1.0
- added (SNES) preliminary support for native Super UFO Pro 8 SD file format.
Use --ufosd to convert a file to Super UFO Pro 8 SD format. More information is
required for a full implementation and any help will be appreciated (by dbjh;
thanks to cage for his help)
- added (SNES) --ufosds convert *.srm (SRAM) file to Super UFO Pro 8 SD (by
dbjh; thanks to cage for the SRAM files)
- updated (SNES) added crack for Diddy's Kong Quest & Dixie Kong's Double
Trouble that makes those games run properly on the Super Flash. It has been
added to snescopy.txt, not to the internal cracks, because it may interfere
with the already present cracks of those games. Apply it with --pattern (by
dbjh, based on post by Tomy of ToToTEK on ToToTEK's Help & Support Forum)
- updated (all) fixed --xreset to really remove power from all programmable
pins (by dbjh)
- added (all) support for EPP when using a PCIe parallel port card that has its
ECP Extended Control register at a non-standard offset, i.e., most PCIe
parallel port cards. Specify the offset in the configuration file by changing
the line that starts with ecr_offset=. See the FAQ (question 53 and 54) for a
more elaborate explanation (by dbjh)
- updated (all) fixed several mistakes in how different pieces of code tried to
enable EPP or simply relied on a BIOS to have configured it right. As a result
the meaning of the switches --xfalm, --xgbxm and --xplm has been reversed (the
associated options use EPP mode by default and use SPP as fallback). Another
consequence is that UserPort can no longer be used as I/O driver (by dbjh)
- updated (SNES) improved --id to the point where its help text can be shown
(by dbjh)
- updated (SNES & Genesis) fixed several edge cases in MGD splitting code (by
dbjh)
- updated (SNES) fixed crash when splitting files in Game Doctor SF3 format >=
100 Mbit (by dbjh)
- updated (all) made --pattern more verbose when -v is specified (by dbjh)
- updated (GBA) made --crp more verbose when -v is specified (by dbjh)
- updated (SNES) made -k, -f & -l more verbose when -v is specified (by dbjh)
- updated (Genesis & PCE) made -f more verbose when -v is specified (by dbjh)
- updated (all) fixed bug in code of --pattern that caused changes to be
omitted in the output file (by dbjh)
- added (SNES & Genesis) --smgh split ROM for MGH. Its main purpose is
splitting SNES HiROM games in MGH format. Splitting is required to make them
run with an MGH (by dbjh, thanks to Mystic_Merlin for information and testing)
- added (SNES & Genesis) --mgh convert to Magic Game Hunter/MGH format. For
SNES this does the same as --gd3, except that the resulting file will have an
MGH name and no header. For Genesis this does something very similar to --mgd,
but the resulting file will have an MGH name. For both consoles an MGH name
file will be produced (by dbjh, thanks to Mystic_Merlin for information and
testing)
- updated (NES, SNES, Genesis & NeoGeo Pocket) fixed --ns (by dbjh)
- updated (SNES) fixed bug in checksum calculation code if the cartridge size
byte of the internal header is 0 (by dbjh, thanks to Mystic_Merlin for
providing the PD ROM that triggered the bug)
- updated (SNES) added support for a few more cartridge configurations to
--ufosd. Still more information is needed, specifically about the header of 8
Mbit HiROMs (by dbjh, thanks to Mystic_Merlin for sending the output of --dbuh
for dumps made with his UFO SD)
- updated (SNES) --ufosd fixes the checksum and pads the output to a valid size
for the UFO SD (by dbjh, thanks to Mystic_Merlin for information and testing)
- added (N64) support for Nintendo 64 DAT files containing CRC32 values of ROMs
in Mr. Backup Z64 format, like what DAT-o-MATIC produces. It can be turned on
by setting the property variable n64_dat_v64 to 0. See the FAQ question 57 (by
dbjh)
- updated (all) fixed double suffix issue when using DAT-o-MATIC DAT files (by
dbjh; thanks to eadmaster for reporting the issue)
- updated (SNES) completed --ufosd by adding support for 8 Mbit HiROM (by dbjh,
thanks to Mystic_Merlin and cage for the information)

Log message:
Import global switch for libusb's implementation [2/2]

This switch is meant to be used by packages requiring an implementation of the
former libusb (as in devel/libusb). The original implementation can be
chosen by setting LIBUSB_TYPE to "native".

The alternative implementation libusb-compat (as in devel/libusb-compat) wraps
libusb1 (in devel/libusb1). This implementation can be chosen by setting
LIBUSB_TYPE to "compat". On NetBSD, it has the advantage of not \ 
requiring root
privileges to locate and use USB devices without a kernel driver.

This second part switches packages using libusb to this framework. It does not
change compilation options or dependencies at this point.

Compile-tested on most packages affected and available on NetBSD/amd64.
