xorgproto replacing lots of fooproto

I've just imported an 'xorgproto' package for this.

It includes the headers that are currently spread over dozens of other

I suggest just replacing the corresponding inclusions with one
for this package and removing the old proto packages.

I'm not sure how to handle (didn't create one yet). Should
it just check for one of the pc files and assume the others are there,
or does anyone have a better idea?

Subject: [ANNOUNCE] xorgproto 2018.1

This package combines the protocol headers, which were formerly
scattered in individual packages. At this point none of them are
changing rapidly enough to justify such fine granularity, particularly
when what changes do occur tend to affect multiple extensions at once
(Present and DRI3 for example). The individual protocols are still
installed as separate pkg-config modules, and consumers should continue
to use the per-protocol package version numbers.

This release includes both an autotools-based and a meson-based build
system. The meson build is slightly faster and more convenient for CI
and embedding, and it is expected to become the default at some point.
However the autotools build is "official" at the moment, in the sense
that it was used to build the release and is generally expected to
work. Please report any issues you have with either one.

<X11/Xfuncproto.h> is no longer dynamically generated according to the
host platform. As a result, this release no longer makes any attempt to
be compatible with pre-C89 compilation environments, which hopefully
nobody would ever notice.
