Log Message:
Update from version 3.6nb2 to 4.0.1.

Pkgsrc changes:
 o Adjust PLIST
 o Remove no-longer-needed patches, since corresponding changes
   have been adopted upstream
 o BUILDLINK_ABI_DEPENDS bumped to >=4.0, since a new shared library

Dependent pkgsrc packages will have their revisions bumped shortly
