sysutils/root-tail: Resurrect port, Print text directly to X11 root window

Simple utility to tail files/logs to a root X window.
Useful for keeping tabs on log files in X without having
an additional terminal window open.

Removed in commit 0786acb3155523a38d1442f3c16ca56750f1db04 due to
being expired. It previously used roottail but is now
using root-tail to follow upstream naming.
