    x11-misc/dzen: near-complete rework
    Replaced large 8kB Makefile patch by smaller (not pretty) ebuild
    workarounds leaving things up to pkg-config. This notably fix lld,
    prefix, and crossdev builds.
    Removed unused-but-set patch, its only purpose was to silence
    build-time warnings.
    Removed USE=minimal and disabled by default. Gadgets are small, quick
    to build, and with no extra deps.
    Removed USE=xft and enabled by default (like upstream). Alternate code
    path is unreliable with locales and there's little reasons to support
    it (doubtful will be brought back, so removing rather than forcing).
    New tarball to drop obsolete SRC_URI.
