patch to fix build

vdr-plugin-xineliboutput fails to build after the update of multimedia/libxine to 1.2.11.

All issues are fixed upstream, unfortunately the current version does not build because we have ancient version of multimedia/vdr.
xineliboutput.c:41:3: error: VDR API versions < 1.7.33 are not supported !

I've combined several upstream commits to fix the build. vdr-sxfe is still working for me. 

Hope that we'll see an update to vdr some day.

Thanks for the patch, do you want to take the maintainership of this port (and also vdr*, if possible)?

Unfortunately, I have no plans to become the maintainer at the moment.

The only reasonable way to keep it working long-term is to update to a more recent version of VDR. The last upgrade to 1.7.29 was over 9 years ago, latest release is 2.4.6. Also, there are over 20 VDR related ports. That sounds like a lot of work.

Committed, thanks.

In their current state I think the vdr* ports should be removed. It makes no
sense that we have to continuously patch them. They are incredibly
outdated. It also looks like many of our patches were never upstreamed.

> Also, there are over 20 VDR related ports. That sounds like a lot of work.

It does sound like a lot of work, so the best way forward would be to do
it step by step and not worry at all about the vdr-plugins-* ports.
I'd update multimedia/vdr and required core plugins (if any) first and
worry about the rest later.
