net/tigervnc-{server,viewer}: Update to 1.10.1

This is a security release to fix a number of issues that were found by
Kaspersky Lab. These issues affect both the client and server and could
theoretically allow an malicious peer to take control over the software
on the other side.

No working exploit is known at this time, and the issues require the
peer to first be authenticated. We still urge users to upgrade when

net/tigervnc-{server,viewer}: Update to 1.10.0

Lots of changes have been made since the last release, but the highlights are:

* The clipboard now supports full Unicode in the native viewer, WinVNC and
* The native client will now respect the system trust store when verifying
server certificates
* Improved compatibility with VMware's VNC server
* Improved compatibility with some input methods on macOS
* Improvements to the automatic "repair" of JPEG artefacts
* Better handling of the Alt keys in some corner cases
* The Java web server has been removed as applets are no longer support by most
* x0vncserver can now be configured to only allow local connections
* x0vncserver has received fixes for when only part of the display is shared
* Polling is now default in WinVNC as that works better for most

Fix the issue tigervnc-server and -viewer cannot be installed together

when DOCS=on because both ports install LICENSE_FILE into the same place.
Also, following changes are made.


- bump PORTREVISION due to plist & dependency change
- do build tests, it introduces unnecessary dependencies on fltk


- add missing dependency on devel/m4
- remove unnecessary dependency on x11-toolkits/fltk

net/tigervnc: separate port into -server -and -viewer

since usually people want to install either server or client on the same
box. Formerly, net/tigervnc had options to build & install vncviewer(client)
but vncviewer could not be installed alone. Server components was necessary.

Now TigerVNC server and viewer are completely separeted and can be installed
