Well, as Guy pointed out, we are not really building 7.4 anymore. 
Stability with the original 7.4 was sketchy, though I personally never
had any issues with it, there are lots of fun exercises to perform all
over the net to get it to play nicely.  I personally like 7.4-1, but
it's a pretty major upgrade from 7.4.  It's also not really a 7.5-pre,
as xorg has not done a pre-release, but I have seen 7.5 thrown around
quite a bit, so the naming convention is open for discussion.  As far as
automating the FTPs, lets do whatever is easiest to do and keeps the
maintenance burden to a minimum in the future.

That probably is not such a big deal, but the bitmap dependency is still
not covered.  Additionally, it should be documented that the testsuite
cannot run until X is fully installed.  IMO, Mesa can be rebuilt if you
really want support for motif widgets in glw, and just make lesstif
depend on x7 as a whole.

Oops in nss patch

Guys, I inadvertently put in the RedHat files instead of my fixed ones
for nss in the current patch.  The new patch will be in place in a few
moments.  If you've already installed nss, a re-install is not
necessary, just replace /usr/bin/nss-config and
/usr/lib/pkgconfig/nss.pc with the attached files.  BTW,
XULrunner-1.9.1.2 builds (and runs via FF-3.5.2) just fine with the
correct nss-config in place.  Now TB-3b3 is another animal completely. 
Anyway, sorry for the mixup.

I like 7.4-1 or 7.4.1 too.  We need to point out that that designation is ours 
and not from Xorg.

The easiest for me is to just do a checkout of the auxfiles and then a daily svn 
update.  We may want to review/reorganize what is in the auxfiles directory.
I don't really think we need all the 7.1 files and the old mozconfig files can 
go too.  A lot of the files are hanging around from 2006 and 2007.

Yes!  Perfect timing.  So Xorg-7.5 will be roughly what we have,
dropping legacy fonts (please), dropping a few more libs and protos (the
ones that support the severs that are no longer built by default),
bumping X11, inputproto, libXi, and xorg-server, and maybe a handful of
other minor updates.  I suppose that solves the naming convention....can
officially call what we have a 7.5-pre if we upgrade to
libX11-1.2.99.90x, xorg-server 1.6.99.90x, and the equivalent xinput and
proto.  Thanks for the heads up Dan.  Should we expect a Mesa-7.5.1 on
the horizon?

Oh, BTW, dropping bitmap fonts means GTK+-1.x will have to go for good
(assuming I'm correct in my assumption about the legacy fonts).  Is
anything still using it that doesn't have an alternative?  AFAIK, only
gnucash was the big holdup long ago, and that is long beyond a 2.x version.

Firefox

I ran into the problmes noted in ticket 
http://wiki.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/ticket/2854 also.  Has anyone figured out 
how to get FF to build without erroring out on

/bin/sh: /usr/lib/xulrunner-devel-1.9.1.2/bin/nspr-config: No such file or directory

Note also for xulrunner and FF, I had to add the following since I have not 
built alsa yet:

ac_add_options --disable-ogg
ac_add_options --disable-wave

That will be another dependency.

When I was building it,  I used  NSPR_LIBS="\`pkg-config nspr
--libs\`" NSPR_CFLAGS="\`pkg-config nspr --cflags\`" (I do not have
the full buildlog on what I did, there were numerous workarounds).
This was on version 1.9.1b4

Did you build nss and nspr separately?  If not, I'm getting ready to 
update the book for it tonight or tomorrow.  nspr-config ships with xul, 
but is not installed by default.  Sadly, one is not included for nss.  
Should be able to look at the new nspr and nss patches to figure out how 
to create the files in the interim...or just use Nathan's work around.
