Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.3.1nb3, Package name: gtk-vnc-1.3.1nb3, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

gtk-vnc is a VNC viewer widget for GTK. It is built using coroutines
allowing it to be completely asynchronous while remaining single
threaded. It provides a core C library, and bindings for Python

Log message:
gtk-vnc: reflect the dependency on pulseaudio when enabled

This should help build packages depending on net/gtk-vnc, when it was
built with the "pulseaudio" option enabled.

<wiz> looks ok to me

Tested on NetBSD/amd64 with net/deforaos-vncviewer.
