Because I got an error from comositeext saying that I needed it.

Can't reproduce it now. In the meantime I found out that I didn't have =20
the xetc set installed. After that, everything builds fine. However =20
xextensions is still built as a dependency although it's only a build =20
time dependency. Is that wrong?

Kind regards
