Well, since we are mucking with the installed files in Xorg-7.2 this 
close to release anyway, then why not go ahead and kill lbxproxy and 
proxymgr?  This closes ticket #2519.  Also get rid of the Xorg-Data page 
and replace it with xcursor-themes since that is all that is left of 
Xorg-Data.  I'll probably go ahead and test at least the " 
--disable-xorgconfig," and "--disable-xorgcfg" switches to the xserver, 
and the "--disable-static" switch to drivers now.  I'm not qualified to 
comment on the other two of Alexander's suggestions that I moved into 
ticket #2520.

I have almost completed the _build_ of the above changes including most 
packages, deviations follow: used libXfont-1.3.1 (as suggested in the 
ticket); removed AppleWM and WindowsWM (proto and lib); removed 
liblbxutil, lbxproxy, and proxymgr.

So far, all checks OK, but I'm still building with otherwise default 
book instructions and it's finishing up fonts now.   It's otherwise  a 
by the book, full build without deviations (except for lsb-v3 
bootscripts in 6.3 LFS which should have no effect).  I'll be more than 
happy to take care of some or all of the above, but I wanted to throw it 
out there.  If one of y'all wants to edit the wget and md5s then please 
go ahead and take care of them all at once (assuming I report back and 
all is well).
