[kde-freebsd] Should graphics/pixieplus still exist?

Deafening silence...

Anyway. Attached is the proposed update -- I suspect, the port has not worked 
for /very/ long time. It used to overwrite a kdelibs-installed x-pcx mimelnk 
and install a useless x-tga, when x-targa was already installed by kdelibs.

This and other pkg-plist problems should all be fixed now. The port will 
depend on and use GraphicsMagick instead of ImageMagick. GM's developers 
emphasise API-stability, so the port should stop requiring as frequent 
updates as it used to. Keeping port's own "private" headers is no longer 
necessary either.

Please, approve. Thanks,
