This is the 1.5 RC 1 snapshot of the docs for X11R7.5 RC1.

The corresponding html & PDF output for these have been uploaded for

be deleted entirely.   (I updated the Solaris one by deleting most of it
since no one needs to know how to build/run this on early 90's versions
like Solaris 2.1 & 2.4, and updating the little that remained.)
