Hi Nikola,

whereas texk/web2c/ and texk/dvipng/ do some tests and use gettimeofday() if
present, alternatively ftime() if present, or just time(), there is no such
test in texk/dvisvgm/.

I'll certainly add such a test, but first would like to know if on FreeBSD
'-lcompat' is required only for ftime() or as well for gettimeofday().
