Updated vnc to 126.96.36.199. Also fixes md5 for docs, reported to be wrong
by Eric Mumpower <firstname.lastname@example.org> 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.
