So, xterm will end up in 'extras' and not in 'apps'?

Thanks.  I'm currently trying to put together a coherent set of packages
for OpenEmbedded, and 0.99.x just doesn't mix well with existent
packages in terms of "<=" runtime dependencies.  So I will just
prepend a "6.99." and drop the leading "0.", resulting in "6.99.99.x",
which should compare fine with existing version numbers.
And I'll leave existing non-0.99.x version numbers, like for libXft.

Thanks for the info
