Log Message:
Updated vnc to Also fixes md5 for docs, reported to be wrong
by Eric Mumpower <> in pkg/9440.

Changes from 3.3.3 (from the webpage):
     * Xvnc now uses a "deferred update" mechanism which enhances
       performance in many cases. After any change to the framebuffer,
       Xvnc waits for a time (default 40ms) before sending an update to
       any waiting clients. This means that more changes tend to get
       coalesced together in a single update. The time can be changed
       with the -deferupdate option. Setting it to 0 results in the same
       behaviour as previous versions of Xvnc.
     * There are a couple of security enhancements. The -localhost option
       now causes Xvnc to only listen on the loopback interface. This
       means that it shouldn't be vulnerable to port scanning. Also a
       "too many tries" feature on authentication failure is now
       implemented. After five failed attempts, further attempts are
       delayed by an exponentially increasing amount, starting at ten

     * Uses SO_REUSEADDR when testing to see which ports are free.

     * When given -owncmap in full screen mode, tries to install the
       colormap. This works only when no window manager is running.
     * The popup window now always uses the default colormap.
     * The "backing store" attribute can now be set on the desktop window
       via the "backingStore" resource. It defaults to "Always", meaning
       the X server should keep the contents of the viewer window when it
       gets obscured by other windows.
