    media-libs/audiofile: Add security patches
    Dropping the system-gtest patch is necessary to make the tests run, as
    mentioned here:
    The three closed bugs are reported test failures fixed by dropping the
    aforementioned patch and a slight repair of src_test. Because we're not
    using system gtest anymore, we can drop the test dependency on
    dev-cpp/gtest, and by extension the IUSE=test boilerplate.
