Description Zenon Panoussis 2007-03-28 13:58:05 UTC
Description of problem:
Compiling from src.rpm produces
XLbx.c: 34:33: error: X11/extensions/XLbx.h: No such file or directory
XLbx.c: 35:35: error: X11/extensions/lbxstr.h: No such file or directory

This causes some identifiers to be undeclared which in turn leads to errors and
breaks the compilation. 

I tried to find the missing files. Until FC5 they were part of
xorg-x11-proto-devel, on FC6 they're no longer there. rpm -qpl on the entire
5Server-beta2 binary distribution says they aren't there. Nor are they part of
the libXext source.
