Basically you need _everything_ from those subdirs, OR
the "everything" directory itself.
But to build 7.1 you need the 7.0 sources too - your
best bet would be to dl both "everything" dirs from 70
and 71 respectively.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but as far as I know the
Sparc version of X is not perfect yet (I remember to
have read that somewhere lately, but I'm not sure at

I'm on Solaris x86, so I'm not sure about the Sparc

One more thing:
Start here!

Good luck!
