This package contains the configuration files, platform data, & Makefile
templates for the archaic Imake build tool.  This is a minor update to
ship the contributed support for Linux on RISC-V & LoongArch, and
AArch64 on Darwin (MacOS), as well as to fix incompatibility when using
GNU binutils 2.36 and later on FreeBSD, and to correct the setting of
the rarely (never?) used ENCODINGSDIR in site.def.

As before, while we continue to accept patches and publish updates for the
benefit of other packages which still use Imake to build, we have not been
actively maintaining, testing, or adding new OS or platform support for
Imake since 2005.  X.Org strongly encourages anyone still using Imake to
move to meson or another modern/maintained build tool.

For example, this release adds support for installing with meson as well
as the traditional GNU autoconf.  Please test building with meson and
report any issues you hit to our gitlab issue tracker at:
as we plan on removing the autoconf build support in a future release.
