Okay, noticed, but remind me when I'm at this point ;-)

I'm now again at v7.4, proto installation was fine, gccmakedep-1.0.2
also, but imake-1.0.2 sais again that it could not find xproto(the sed
errors disappeared). I edited the PKG_CONFIG_PATH to 7.4.
"pkg-config --cflags xproto" returns this:
"Package xproto was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `xproto.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'xproto' found"

Any ideas? I've none.
