This implies what? I thought NoMachine closed down NX such that X2go
is now "without a parent" so to speak, and thus the new authoritative
source. Or not?

Xcomp, Xcompext and Xcompshad are specific to NX and did not clash with 
any Xorg-X11 lib, so I chose not to add a prefix at first. But I do not 
really mind them getting a NX_ prefix either. The pkgconfig files also 
need updating, they still show the old names.

[It would have also been a lot easier if NX/x2go used
X11R7 as a base. Imakefiles make sick and the specfile is huge.]

The three libs are placed into /usr/lib/nx while all the other
NX-specific libs are in /usr/X11R6/lib/nx.. an inexplicible
discrepancy. Suffice to say /usr/X11R6 is obsolete now and the libs
that previously lived there are now in /usr.

The question here is whether someone populated the SO version with
the package version because they had nothing better to do, or
because they are vowing to newer remove/change any existing interface
until .so.4. There was no way to tell, hence using this patch.--
which, as I review it, notice that it is incomplete.

Actually I threw this patch out again and replaced it by

# Need to do this since %%nxprefix (resp. %%_libexecdir) is variadic.
perl -i -pe 's{^(#define ProjectRoot)\s.*}{$1 %nxprefix}' \

because libexecdir is not necessarily /usr/lib, but e.g. /usr/libexec.
