TDE on FreeBSD 11.2-p1 failes to build

Hi all!

I just tried to build TDE on FreeBSD 11.2 and found some problems:

1) The Makefile relies on "xorgproto", which does not exist on 11.2 (I think it can be found in 12). x11/xorgproto from ports conflicts with glproto etc., so it annot be used. Removing "xorgproto" from the Makefile works, of course.

2) tqt3 fails to build due to the system/compiler "freebsd-clang" is not present in ${QTBASE}/share/tqt3/mkspecs/freebsd-clang, but ${QTBASE}/share/tqt3/mkspecs/freebsd-g++ exists. Modifying the Makefile and replacing all "mkspecs/freebsd-clang" to "mkspecs/freebsd-g++" lets me build tqt3. Rebuild is in progress, so I don't know right now it this necessary for all Makefiles.

a good idea to provide an overview of all packages installed on your system
