For all the things I added recently always I looked up the gentoo ebuild
for the summary and added a proper description from the website as well.

Those I added long ago when trying to get libXpm building and I suppose
I ended up angry at the shitload of useless dependencies just for libXpm.

libpthread-stubs is probably the funniest since it ends up building
nothing because we provide everything, so the package just contains a
.pc file :^)
