Re: xorgproto replacing lots of fooproto

I've now switched all packages to use xorgproto.

I've tested this with modular and ~500 affected packages, which
still built as well as before for me (some better, because I fixed
them ;) ).

I did not provide a file because I couldn't think of a
reasonable solution, and the xorgproto package is small and
built-dependency only.

pkgtools/x11-links might need fixes, I hope someone can do that for
native builds.
