hsetroot is a tool which allows you to compose wallpapers ("root pixmaps")
for X11.  It has a lot of options like rendering gradients, solids, images
but it also allows you to perform manipulations on those things, or chain
them together.  You could use one standard background image for instance,
and using tint to make it fit your current theme.  And yes, of course it is
compatible with semi-translucent applications like aterm and xchat.

At this time, hsetroot can render: gradients (multi-color with variable
distance), solids (rectangles) and images (centered, tiled, fullscreen, or
maximum aspect).  It supports the following manipulations: tinting
(overlaying a color mask), blurring, sharpening, flipping (horizontally,
diagonally, vertically) it also allows you to adjust brightness, contrast
and gamma-level.  hsetroot also supports alpha-channels when rendering

Add explicit run-time dependency on `x11/xrandr': the program fails to run
when xrandr(1) is not installed:

  $ hsetroot ...
  sh: xrandr: not found

Unbreak the build (at least) on powerpc, powerpc64, sparc64, by moving the
`for' loop initial declaration variable outside; this was upsetting C99:

  hsetroot.c: In function 'load_image':
  hsetroot.c:196: error: 'for' loop initial declaration used outside C99 mode

Tested on:	powerpc, sparc64

Add custom patch that introduces "sane" image rendering mode: it allows to
select the best aspect ratio and display image with minimal scaling yet not
centered.  This mode is useful when one wants to use an image with author's
copyright in the lower corner and wants to hide it.  Existing modes did not
always provide the best possible result.  While here, take maintainership.

Mark some ports failing on power64.  In cases where the error message
was a stub, provide a real one.

While here, pet portlint.
