It is helpful.  Thanks.  We need to add a real dependency tree for 
Xorg-7.0.0 I think.  Just need a nice way to present it.  The 17 listed 
libraries are not the only needed libs needed either...those simply 
provide all the interdependacies for themselves and the rest of the 40 
libs to build correctly.  I'm sorry if it read that way...those 
instructions are brand new so any additional feedback is really appreciated.
