Building net/tigervnc on Solaris fails, because the dependency mcookie does not build. After removing this dependency, the package builds and at least vncserver is usable. I can't say if generated Xauth cookies are less safe now, though. Maybe mcookie can be included conditionally on all OSes except SunOS.

OTOH starting vncserver fails if xkeyboard-config is missing, so this should be added as a dependency to tigervnc.
