libX11: update to 1.7.0.

libX11 version 1.7.0 includes a new API, hence the change from the 1.6
series to 1.7:

 * XSetIOErrorExitHandler which provides a mechanism for applications
   to recover from I/O error conditions instead of being forced to
   exit. Thanks to Carlos Garnacho for this.

This release includes a bunch of bug fixes, some which have been pending for \ 
over three years:

 * A bunch of nls cleanups to remove obsolete entries and clean up
   formatting of the ist. Thanks to Benno Schulenberg for these.

 * Warning fixes and other cleanups across a huge swath of the
   library. Thanks to Alan Coopersmith for these.

 * Memory allocation bugs, including leaks and use after free in the
   locale code. Thanks to Krzesimir Nowak, Jacek Caban and Vittorio
   Zecca for these.

 * Thread safety fixes in the locale code. Thanks to Jacek Caban for

 * poll_for_response race condition fix. Thanks to Frediano Ziglio for
   the bulk of this effort, and to Peter Hutterer for careful review
   and improvements.

Version 1.7.0 includes a couple of new locales:

 * ia and ie locales. Thanks to Carmina16 for these.

There are also numerous compose entries added, including:

 * |^ or ^| for ↑, |v or v| for ↓, ~~ for ≈. Thanks to Antti
    Savolainen for this.

 * Allowing use of 'v' for caron, in addition to 'c', so things like
   vC for Č, vc for č. Thanks to Benno Schulenberg for this.

 * Compose sequences LT, lt for '<', and GT, gt for '>' for keyboards
   where those are difficult to access. Thanks to Jonathan Belsewir
   for this.

Heap corruption in the X input method client in libX11


The X Input Method (XIM) client implementation in libX11 has some
integer overflows and signed/unsigned comparison issues that can lead
to heap corruption when handling malformed messages from an input


Patches for these issues have been commited to the libX11 git repository.
libX11 1.6.10 will be released shortly and will include those patches.


commit 1703b9f3435079d3c6021e1ee2ec34fd4978103d (HEAD -> master)

    Change the data_len parameter of _XimAttributeToValue() to CARD16

    It's coming from a length in the protocol (unsigned) and passed
    to functions that expect unsigned int parameters (_XCopyToArg()
    and memcpy()).

commit 1a566c9e00e5f35c1f9e7f3d741a02e5170852b2

    Zero out buffers in functions

    It looks like uninitialized stack or heap memory can leak
    out via padding bytes.

commit 2fcfcc49f3b1be854bb9085993a01d17c62acf60

    Fix more unchecked lengths

commit 388b303c62aa35a245f1704211a023440ad2c488

    fix integer overflows in _XimAttributeToValue()

commit 0e6561efcfaa0ae7b5c74eac7e064b76d687544e

    Fix signed length values in _XimGetAttributeID()

    The lengths are unsigned according to the specification. Passing
    negative values can lead to data corruption.


X.Org thanks Todd Carson for reporting these issues to our security
team and assisting them in understanding them and providing fixes.

Log message:
all: migrate several HOMEPAGEs to https

pkglint --only "https instead of http" -r -F

With manual adjustments afterwards since pkglint 19.4.4 fixed a few
indentations in unrelated lines.

This mainly affects projects hosted at SourceForce, as well as
freedesktop.org, CTAN and GNU.
