hey.

just tried to build the src.rpm on redhat 8.0 system.

It couldn't find libX*.so

I got it to work by doing
ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/libX*.so

where * means a whole bunch of libraries like libX11,
libXext, etc

    I had the same (or similar) problem on Mandrake 9 and was
    able to use:

    cd /usr
    ln -s X11R6 X11

    to get things working. Apparently /usr/X11/lib is not
    standard any more?

    This appears to be fixed. The X11R6 directory was added to
    the lib section for the linux.cfg file.
