i'm trying to build X11R7.1 .
my first problem is knowing what to download. i see the 7 or so
directories, data, .... lib, .... but i don't know
which ones i will need. i was hoping i could find a
"here's a typical baseline list" of packages but i didn't.
so i blundered ahead. i started with libXau, which tells me i
need an xproto.pc installed. i know about pkg-config, that's not
the question. but where is xproto.pc going to come from? is there
something(s) else i'm going to need to do first? where do i start?
i think you see what my problem is.
i have ancient and clumsy X11R5 and 6 lying around, they were done
by another and in a wacky way. i was hoping to do a nice clean
build of the latest and greatest. (FYI)
this one happens to be for solaris, sparc, but i expect to do others
down the road if i can make this one happen.
thanks in advance. i am very glad to see this stuff is being maintained.
i tried to get in on the conversion to autoconf/automake and so on, but
i guess i asked too late or they just didn't want me.
