Yeah, it's nothing new.  But it's one of the few remaining patches we need to build all bits.

Yeah, that's what Gaetan suggested, too.  Your release of xbitmaps yesterday just reminded me that it didn't get resolved yet.

Is there any reason why we can't rename the bitmaps provided by bitmap to by "namespaced" (bitmap-Stipple, etc), or should we just move all the bitmaps from bitmap into xbitmaps (stipple and Stipple are different)?
