Ok, the ones that weren't adpoted yet were flac, gd, gdk-pixbuf, and
libcap.  I've adopted them all.

gd had dep fontconfig, which had dep freetype2, which were both
orphaned.  Who handles X stuff?  Would this be included?  In any case,
I'm giving another couple of days for them to be adopted - if they're
not grabbed by Tuesday (giving everyone time for thanksgiving, heh)
I'll pick them up.

gdk-pixbuf had dependency gtk orphaned.  Same deal as above - JGC
handles gnome stuff, is GTK something you want?  I'll grab it Tuesday
if it's still up for grabs.

Again, here's my new list of stuff I'll grab by Tues:
