To build X sources, or not to build X sources
I ask this question as someone who runs no desktop NetBSD systems,
at the moment.
I've been keeping my src and xsrc trees up to date when I build
things. And was thinking, "Why are these separate?" Clearly, the
answer is because many people don't need/want the xsrc repository.
Myself, I've been of the habit of installing xbase on all systems,
just to have the few clients I need to, say, run "resize" and various
other things. I can't remember the last time I actually invoked a
true X client on my servers, though, so I've come to wonder, is there
really any point in continueing to build all of the X packages?
In large part, this e-mail is an inquiry of opinion. Is there
anyone who finds the basics of building X important, yet still isn't
planning to use it to run X servers and/or specific X clients?
Just wondering if I can/should save myself some build time [until I
next consider running a NetBSD desktop]...
