        pkgsrc/x11/x11vnc: Makefile distinfo

Log Message:
Update x11vnc to 0.9.4.

New in the 0.9.4 x11vnc release:

        Reverse VNC connections (-connect and  -connect_or_exit options)
                work in the -find and -create X session FINDCREATEDISPLAY

        Reverse VNC connections (either normal or using SSL) can use a
                Web Proxy, a SOCKS proxy, the UltraVNC repeater proxy,
                an SSH connection, or even a CGI URL to make the outgoing
                connection (-proxy option).  Forward connections can
                use the -ssh option to set up a reachable redirection.

        Support for the ZYWRLE encoding is added, this is the RealVNC ZRLE
                encoding extended to do motion video and photo regions
                more efficiently by way of a Wavelet based transformation.

        The session finding and creating modes (-find and -create) have
                been improved to be more reliable and also provide a new
                desktop types (xfce) and new service redirection options.

        Support for indexed colormaps (PseudoColor) with depths other
                than 8 is provided (depths 1 to 16 now work).

        Java viewer applet source code is provided in the x11vnc 0.9.4
                tarball so now everything can be built from source.

  miscellaneous new features and changes:

        To unset Caps_Lock, Num_Lock and raise all keys in the X server
                use -clear_all, or by remote control 'x11vnc -R clear_all'

        The -autoport option gives more control over the server port
                range that probes.

        The -ping option can be used to help keep idle connections alive.

        The -finddpy and -listdpy utilities help to debug and configure
                the -find, -create, and -display WAIT:... modes.

        Some automatic detection of screen resizes are handled even if
                the -xrandr option is not supplied.

        The -advertise_truecolor option can workaround some VNC viewer
                incompatibilities with PseudoColor.

        The option '-clip xinerama0' can be used to clip to the first
                Xinerama sub-screen, etc.

        If a fast framebuffer read rate is detected the -wait and -defer
                parameters are reduced to 10 and 15 msec, respectively.

        Pasting of the selection/clipboard into remote applications
                (e.g. Java) is improved.

        Usage with dvorak keyboards is improved.  The option -macuskbd is
                available on MacOSX to use the original US keyboard code.

        Via a compiler option (-DENABLE_GRABLOCAL) one can use the
                -grablocal n option to filter VNC client input if someone
                at the console has done mouse or keyboard input n secs ago.

        The -sleepin option can now sleep a random amount of time between
                min and max time delays (-sleepin min-max).
