Log message:
Remove xextproto/buildlink3.mk in most cases where it occurs with
libXext/buildlink3.mk, now that it is included there.
Leave the places where its API version is set or variables from it
are used directly (about 3 packages).

Update to 1.1.0, changes since 1.0.1:

  * Respect maximise states while resizing
  * Add basic .desktop file
  * Add configuration file
    $HOME/.evilwmrc - options are one per line, omitting leading dash.
  * Add long alternatives to -g, -v and -s
    -geometry, -vdesk and -sticky.
  * Record pre-maximisation dimensions in evilwm-specific window properties
  * Extensive EWMH support.  See doc/standards.html for details.
  * Mostly new Makefile
  * Clean up terminology: use "fixed" instead of "sticky":  \ 
EWMH uses
    the term "sticky" to mean something different.
  * Add ability to toggle visible state of docks with Ctrl+Alt+D
    Usually apps like pagers or launch bars.
  * Add -dock option to force app to be considered a dock
  * Snap-to-border and colourmap support no longer optional
    Though -snap still defaults to 0 (off).
  * fix: drawing window outline with border_width > 1 [David Flynn]
    (bottom and right edges wouldn't encompass the border)
  * build: enable out-of-tree builds [David Flynn]
  * build: enable ISO c99 [David Flynn]
  * Fix snapping on multiple screens [Ben Stern]
  * Window gravity behviour fixes.
  * Remove warning about strict-aliasing rules [Larry Doolittle]

Update to evilwm-1.0.1

*** Changes between 1.0.0 and 1.0.1:

Wed Mar 11 15:41:02 GMT 2009  Ciaran Anscomb <evilwm@6809.org.uk>
  * XFlush() shouldn't be required in interruptibleXNextEvent()

Thu Nov 20 11:17:07 GMT 2008  Larry Doolittle <>
  * Fix interaction with X and signal handler
  Larry Doolittle encountered a problem with the signal handler's
  interaction with later versions of X.org and submitted this patch.  It
  adds an interruptible version of XNextEvent() borrowed from the Blender
  source code (copyright Mark J. Kilgard) that allows a more graceful
  exit from the main event loop rather than getting the signal handler to
  do it.
