*** I am happy to try to recompile it if someone would point me to the
source which actually works (i.e. is compilable). At some stage (OBSD 2.4)
I had a copy of the X sources (which worked) from Thomas Graichen, but I
lost it and have not been able to locate it again... I tried contacting
Thomas but he didn't come back to me - perhaps someone else has more luck?
