clean up of x11-drivers/xf86-input-wacom

Trim a few USES and USE_XORG items that are not needed. Removal of install-strip assumes PR216269. Checked with poudriere on 10 i386/amd64 and 11 i386/amd64/ppc64.

> -USES=		tar:bzip2 pathfix pkgconfig libtool
> +USES=		tar:bzip2 pathfix

tar:bzip2 can be dropped as well.

> +USE_XORG=	x11 xext xinerama xrandr
> -LDFLAGS+=	-Wl,--as-needed # Xext

Why? -Wl,--as-needed is used to garbage-collect unused libraries that make the package less flexible on upgrades e.g., due to SOVERSION bumps. This is shorter and less error-prone than doing the following:

		-e '/XPROTOS/s/ xext//' \
		-e '/LIBS=/s/-lm//' \

> -INSTALL_TARGET=	install-strip

Better move such cleanup into bug 216269.

(In reply to Jan Beich (mail not working) from comment #1)
You are right that tar:bzip2 is unneeded in USES because bsd.xorg.mk sets that for us. I had overlooked that detail.

Regarding the LD_FLAGS, it was not clear what purpose those served. I could only guess from the terse comment that it was meant to compensate for xext missing from UES_XORG. If those linker flags still have a purpose after adding xext to the XORG_USES then of course that line should remain.
