I have it unpacked ready to import to CVS and then I'll build it on
sparc (and maybe pmax).  I won't really be able to try it though until I
get my workstation upgraded to match the build machine though....

Hmmm... unless I netboot from the build machine....  that might be
easier and sooner!  ;-)

I think it kinda goes the other way around.  X11R6.6 is from's
ongoing X Window project, and XFree picks up the stuff and makes
it more pc-like...   [0.5 :-)]

It seems XFree-4.1.0 is based on X11R6.5.1, but I'm not sure just how
much they integrated and what's unique to XFree -- their release notes
aren't exactly clear on these issues.

(all I see is that they re-wrote Xinerama)
