New XEmacs packages available

Finally I’ve pushed almost all pending patches and fixes for XEmacs into portage. XEmacs 21.4.20-r1 fixes a recently uncovered crash when playing wavs using linux native audio on 64-bit systems by trying to cast an int into a size_t. Even though this stops xemacs from crashing after trying to play a sound, something still isn’t quite right as the sounds sound very funny. Therefore I have also added the esd USE flag so that esound can be used to play the sounds.

In addition to these XEmacs changes a whole set of packages have also been released. Most of these have been in pre-release for several months, so it’s good to see them finally released. All of these have been added as well. Most of the packages only have minor bug fixes, except for app-xemacs/calendar which got a lot of new functionality added.
