I'm trying to follow this thread, but I'm a bit confused as to what
exactly is broken. Is the bottom line that the BLFS instructions for
installing Xorg-7.2 are broken and shouldn't be used?

Or is eliminating libxcb a solution that works and has no affect on
other packages down the road?

I'm asking because on the Xorg site, it says that libxcb is now an
official part of Xorg-7.2, but we aren't installing it.

Can anyone install applicable patches to
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/patches/downloads/xorg/ that should
be used in a BLFS installation with libxcb and one to fix the other
bug Alex is speaking of? Is there such patches available already?

Sorry for my ignorance about this, but I would like to get a 7.2
installation completed so I can test my GNOME instructions.
