Touchscreen apps don't work on TFT

I was able to start pinet (only app displayed by the launcher) on the TFT but cannot exit it, possibly because the screen size is not accurate in the app.

The latest update to piboxlib fixes pinet. Now I need to test with all touch apps.
Note that pinet changed how it handles recognizing a touchscreen. It now checks if it's a TFT and then sets the local CLI_TOUCH flag. This is cleaner than what was being used previously and should be propagated to all touchscreen aware UI apps.
One step forward, one step back...
Now I find that S99UI in the dev platform (pibox repo: src/buildroot/etc/init.d/S99UI) will update xorg.conf, trying to use xorg.conf.rpitouch. I don't want it doing that with the TFT displays because the TFT package (and pibox-hdmi script) can fix things up as needed.
So I need to add some kind of flag to tell S99UI not to do that and have lcdshow package set that flag on install (and unset it on package removal).

This is now fixed and pisentry can be installed with the TFT display.
Changes tested on hardware, committed and pushed. If additional problems are encountered they will be tracked separately.
