Just a heads up...

if there is any reason, unknown to the collective wisdom of port-arm32,
not to add XKB support to XF86_SVGA on arm32 (for the benefit of Shark users),
please speak up.

For me, too.

Mike Pumford reported it works (well, doesn't break) the Xarm32VIDC server
(for RiscPC).

If nobody provides evidence that it would be a problem, I'll change arm32
to build XKB into X (as proposed by Thomas Runge) by end of this week.
