And then the x server's doesn't satisfy this other library that depends
on the x server's library so in the end you cannot build that other
library and as such cannot update, say, glib, and thus no updated
apps here and there and ...
I went down this route for some time, but it stopped working somewhen
along the way. I might try again (hell, I don't have X on this box
right now and I need X on this box so I'll do whatever... (yes, I
have backups of all the ancient packages because I did run into this
before for multiple times)).
