Re: CVS commit: pkgsrc/x11/xorg-cf-files

* After you switched to use tradcpp unconditionally for imake,
  it may help for your build with clang, but broke not negligible
  other platforms, not broken previously.

* No matter how you said, 'This is right', 'That is wrong',
  you cannot control that someone (did/will do) as you like.

What issues are you seeing specifically? Note that the imake rules are
deep twisted maze of macros and some platforms like Linux were written
under the assumption that gmake is used. I fixed those case I was aware
of. I wouldn't be surprised if Solaris has similar cases.

- Installation of print/transfig fails, because tradcpp does only
define "__sun" but not "sun", so imake includes the wrong file
( instead of As a result, InstallCmd is "bsdinst"
(which is not present) instead of "install-sh".

David discussed this with me and I prefer the fix to not depend on "sun"
as that's one of those nice macros that get undefined all over the place
when cpp is used on non-sources, because it conflicts with normal
