I'd like to know why we lack a dynamic version of the Xss library. The only
version i have on the boxes i have (1.6, 1.6_STABLE, 1.6K, 1.6M) is static

The reason i ask that is that i created a package for licq and its qt plugin
and it needs a dynamic Xss. I had to manually create it (the package works
great now)
Try to package licq

Manually compile, or hack the X11 Makefiles.
