/xwatchwin, Watch a window on another X server
1.1.1nb2, Package name:
xwatchwin-1.1.1nb2, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users
xwatchwin allows you to peek at a window on another X server.
To use it, you must specify the display name of the machine you want
to watch, then the name of the window on that machine.
Xwatchwin will attempt to connect with the X server
hostname:0.0, and if successful, will try to retrieve a copy of
the window in which you specified interest.
You may specify the window you want to watch either by name or by its
window id, usually a hexidecimal number. Usually specifying the
window by name is simpler, although not all windows have names
associated with them; in that case you must use the window id option.
If the window you want to watch is not in a viewable state,
xwatchwin will tell you so and exit. If while you are watching
a window it becomes 'unviewable', xwatchwin will wait until the
window becomes 'viewable' again.
xwatchwin was written as an aid to a class for people learning
to use X. The idea is that the instructor would type into an xterm
window on his/her display and the students would use xwatchwin
to see what the instructor typed. The students could then type the
same thing in their own terminal windows. Hopefully others will find
equally (if not more) constructive uses.

Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for x11 category
Problems found locating distfiles:
Package modular-xorg-server: missing distfile xorg-server-1.17.4.tar.bz2
Package py-qt4: missing distfile PyQt-mac-gpl-4.11.1.tar.gz
Package xservers: missing distfile xservers-22.214.171.124.tar.bz2
Package xview-clients: missing distfile xview3.2p1-X11R6.tar.gz
Package xview-lib: missing distfile xview3.2p1-X11R6.tar.gz
Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden). All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.

- fine grained X11 dependencies for packages which have either USE_IMAKE
or USE_X11BASE set, but don't include mk/x11.buildlink3.mk directly or
- introduce BUILDLINK_PREFIX.libXpm as alias for BUILDLINK_PREFIX.xpm
in the !modular case
- fix some cases where the check for libX11 couldn't work at all by using
C++ for compilation without including the proper headers
Verified using a full X11_TYPE=xorg bulk build without additional
breakage. Discussed with salo@, wiz@ and send to packages@ for feedback.

Point MAINTAINER to pkgsrc-users@NetBSD.org in the case where no
developer is officially maintaining the package.
The rationale for changing this from "tech-pkg" to \
that it implies that any user can try to maintain the package (by
submitting patches to the mailing list). Since the folks most likely
to care about the package are the folks that want to use it or are
already using it, this would leverage the energy of users who aren't
