I'm trying now by using pkgtools.conf to replace xproto and xextensions with xorglibraries.... if I knew how to create a .la file, then libXcursor could be replaced too by xorglibraries... am I right in my understanding that libXcursor / xproto / libXau / xextensions and others are the XFree86 (and therefore older) equivalents of xorg-libraries? thanks :) Beto _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
