When will xlibs be used instead of monolithic xorg? And xpm questions...

Thank you for the link. I had read some of it before. It describes
libtool's -version-info.

Xpm's Xpm/lib/Makefile.am has:

libXpm_la_LDFLAGS = -version-number 4:5:0 -no-undefined

The libtool manual at http://www.gnu.org/software/libtool/manual.html

   `-version-info current[:revision[:age]]'

 If output-file is a libtool library, use interface version information
 current, revision, and age to build it (see section 6. Library interface
 versions). Do not use this flag to specify package release information,
 rather see the `-release' flag.

  `-version-number major[:minor[:revision]]'

 If output-file is a libtool library, compute interface version
 information so that the resulting library uses the specified major, minor
 and revision numbers. This is designed to permit libtool to be used with
 existing projects where identical version numbers are already used across
 operating systems. New projects should use the `-version-info' flag

Maybe -version-info should be used instead.
