Actually GNOME is mine now; I updated the non-GUI libs a while ago,
thinking that the GUI would not be far behind, but I hit a snag.

A while ago I started working on modular X11R7, but I couldn't get XWin
to find the fonts (search the archives for details).  So now I use
modular X11R7.1 for the client and the old X11R6.8 server; sounds odd,
but it works.

The problem is not the API, as that didn't change, but that modular
X11R7 is libtooled, and since GTK is also libtooled and built against
it, the dependency libs are hardcoded (i.e. /usr/lib/ vs.
- -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lX11).  This makes it impossible to build against my
GNOME without modular X (missing .la deps will cause libtool link
errors), which I didn't feel ready to add to the distro until the server
worked also.

A while ago I asked for help figuring out the problem, but got no
response.  Therefore I left things as they were, and moved on to other
things.  And since I do have a matching glib2 and gtk2, I didn't think
of this.  If you think you can help, please search the archives for a
start, and let me know what you think.
