Yes, I have read this, but it basically only discusses problems with xmkmf, as
distributed with Solaris.  However, I have the X11R6.3 version, which works just

I'll send in a patch to fix some of the problems I've fixed so far, and some of
the error messages, and perhaps someone can help me thru them.  I'll be away

Oh, actually, I remember there being a problem with the include's for the scsi/
directory, of which Solaris 2.6 does not have.  Does anyone know why there are
