Someone on the mailing list pointed out recently that Openmotif can be
put in binary form on download page as well.

I restored "Links" page. It was checked superficialy so do not
hurl curses on my poor head. Not yet, please. :-) I hope you'll be
tipping me off in a future with NetBSD sensitive information (or links
to the data). :-) I'd appreciate any news or articles covering hardware
issues and such topics like cryptography, storage, wireless
connections, and PC Board compliancy.

Perhaps this page of mine should be joined with Wiki page
but speak for themselves in the matter.

__I do not want to double or tripple others' works.__
Do we really need at least three separate link pages (I didn't check
deeply the topic)? Mine, "official's", and wiki's? Do we?

I __know__ I make a lot of errors. How can I spell-check my
e-mails in Sylpheed?

2) Thunderbird can spell-check via "enchant" lib and encrypt e-mails
with "enigmail" lib. Why NetBSD delievers in binary form __only__
enchant library?

That's what makes NetBSD highly irritating as far as
__good__ NetBSD desktop is concerned. The binaries are created ad hoc
as well. You'll never build easy and eye-caching system without paying
attention to the "binary consistency" problem.
