update x11-drivers/xf86-input-elographics

All the input drivers other than keyboard, mouse, joystick, synaptics, evdev, and libinput are unmaintained upstream. I have collected any git commits past the last release and added patches as necessary to build error-free with a modern Xorg server (tested with 1.18.4 and 1.19.1), but I do not have this ancient input hardware so cannot run test. While this is only build tested, it's still an improvement as these have seen little or no attention in years. If anyone uses this hardware, please report on the state of this driver, otherwise it will be assumed to be unused and no further maintenance efforts will be extended.

New revision: 432295
URL: https://svnweb.freebsd.org/changeset/ports/432295

  Import few patches from upstream to allow building with newer xorg

  Note that those drivers are barely maintained and might disappear in the futur
