I had problems with a complete build.
Some programs report this kind of error:
 /usr/X11R6.3/bin >xstdcmap
 /usr/libexec/ Undefined symbol "_SmcSaveYourselfDone" in 
I could figure out that the function _SmcSaveYourselfDone is a member of 
the SM library and that this and the Xt library are available and 
'ldconfig'ured. I've rebuild the SM and the Xt library but neither

I dont whant to edit all Imakefiles.
I read once more your adds. And it rather seems to be a X11 problem.
The first build I have done was with  HasSharedLibs YES and the above
mentioned error came out.
Now I attempted to rebuild all with the SharedReqs out of your 'diffs'
and HasSharedLibs NO. But now ..
( #if HasSharedLibraries
  #include <bsdLib.rules> <-- woun't get included.
And the make World produces staticly linked binaries. 
The programs do not produce the above mentioned error and work mostly as 
they should but are 5 times bigger than the SharedLibs binaries.

There seems still to be something wrong with the Xnest server. 
I opened this on another machine but a xterm -display :1 to it produces 
 xterm -display :1
 X Error of failed request:  BadLength (poly request too large or 
 internal Xlib length error)
  Major opcode of failed request:  72 (X_PutImage)
  Serial number of failed request:  22
  Current serial number in output stream:  26

And xterm to a nonexisten server produces the right error message but 
then core dumps what it shouldn't.

BTW what means the flag DDXOSINIT? Is it appropriate for hp300 too.
