 I'll try to build all of those in '4' _except_ pulseaudio, but it
might be a while before I get there : I've just completed my normal
build of xorg on a new 7.5 and booted it, now I need to build
glib/gtk/etc/icewm, firefox, the print/photo progs, libreoffice.
I'm _sort_of_ hoping that will show my kernel problem with 3.13.5
(twice, on the previous build, rm -rf to delete a source directory
was looping with one cpu pinned at 100%), but if it does then I'll
actually be spending time looking at that.

 I s'pose I can probably build those on the other box, to check
exactly what gets installed in /usr/libexec without --libexecdir.
Not sure (no book in front of me), but perhaps I can also build
pulse and its deps.

das eine Mal als Tragödie, dieses Mal als Farce
