patch for print/epson-inkjet-printer-escpr

Version 1.7.8 was appeared in 2020-10-14.

New PPD files for EP-713A series and EP-813A series have been added.

There have been some minor changes to the program code. It comments out the XFIFO* functions and uses code that is older than 1.6.0.
But the FreeBSD port enables it again. (That makes the code equivalent to 1.7.7.) Because its crashing code included from 1.6.0 has been reported and patched (bug 203637 comment #7, bug 204250). After that, there have been no reports of problems.

That and minor cleanup.

Find the download page on the WWW at pkg-descr. However, the download page does not describe the changes in detail.
Also, the URL of the download page contains a hash. I don't want to post such URLs here because they often contain the purpose of preventing direct access :) .
The changes are described in the file ${WRKSRC}/NEWS in the distfile.
I'm writing a rough summary as #0, looking at the differences like this attachment.

If reporter == maintainer, doesn't setting flag maintainer-feedback:+ imply a maintainer update?

Raise the flag again :)
