Hello everyone,

I'm rebuilding my Linux box after first building it 2.5 years ago (LFS: 
SVN-20060531) (I came across some pre-compiled software than needed a 
newer glibc).  I've been a long time Linux user -- my first install was 
in 1992 (Slackware (oh, all of those 3.5" floppies!) kernel 0.99 pl 
12orsomething) -- even contributed a bit to the kernel code back then 
(the slip driver).

Have used other distros since: Debian, Mandrake, Suse -- but found 
LFS/BLFS a couple of years ago and am quite satisfied.  Started/finished 
my new LFS 6.4 build about a month ago and have since been installing 
BLFS components.

It's not a "pure" 6.3/SVN BLFS build (i.e. adhering the the package 
revisions) -- I've grabbed even newer revisions here and there -- but 
using the basic BLFS instructions for install.

The use of my box is for a home server/workstation.  Enough of an intro, 
now onto my questions:

- VNC looks for /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xserver/SecurityPolicy

Installed Xorg 7.4, but the packages didn't create this file -- it's in 
my older BLFS file system.  Does anyone know which package installs this 

- KDE 4.1.3

What a can of worms! with many advanced packages, there's 
dependency after dependency.  I've "successfully" installed it, but have 
gone back a couple of times now to install dependencies for further 
functionality and/or to fix issues.  Not really a question here, but 
this might be better for the blfs-development list, I can share some of 
what I have found if anyone is interested (new concepts like cmake).

Happy New Year
