 Apparently, it was part of svgalib. -patches has a patch for 1.9.25
from Randy, with the comment

Patches build breakage, toolchain updates, and some enhancements
I am not sure why anyone would even use this old library, however

 So I'm becoming less convinced that we shoul do anything, except,
for the moment, mark resizecons as something like 'i?86' only.
