Thanks for the reply Daniel. Didn't recieve it in my mail but found it on
the archive. :-(

The layout doesn't make sense to me on the xorg server. It seems
"everything" is short a few packages atleast. I've only checked 'app' so far
and am missing these from the X11R7.2 directory entirely:


So where is one supposed to grab these from, if not from individual/app or
X11R7.2/everything ? Those packages aren't listed in 'deprecated' so they
are still a part of the the 7.2 release, no? Confusing...

Thanks again for your time. If there is anyone else who builds X themselves,
feel free to jump in... If I'm missing 3 from app, I'm sure I'm going to be
missing a few from lib and fonts as well....
