* libpotrace-devel-1.16-1

Potrace is a tool for tracing a bitmap, which means, transforming a bitmap into 
a smooth, scalable image.  The input is a bitmap (PBM, PGM, PPM, or BMP), and 
the default output is one of several vector file formats.  A typical use is to 
create EPS files from scanned data, such as company or university logos, 
handwritten notes, etc.  The resulting image is not jaggy like a bitmap, but 
smooth.  It can then be rendered at any resolution.

This is an update to the latest upstream release.
