Just out of curiosity, what do you consider more important?
o xbase is currently uninstallable on m68k because someone built an
unpatched version (not their fault, maxima mea culpa [but hey,
o xfree86 is 3.3.1 on m68k, but 3.3.2 on i386 and source
o xlib6 no longer exists on m68k (Brian rm'ed it from the archive),
making 10+ packages uninstallable without --force-depends
o xfree86 3.3.2 contains many security fixes not in 3.3.1, and
3.3.2-4 contains even more.
If there are packages which need built more urgently than xfree86, I'd
like to know about them.

You might want to consider waiting for the real 3.3.2-4 which is
slated for Monday and fixes a number of security bugs.

Yes, you'll definitely want this patch for 3.3.2-3 (-4 has it),
otherwise X will be uninstallable on m68k (as it atm).
BTW: sorry for my absence here, I'm in the presence of trying to
rescue my (possibly final) year project, and it's chewing way more of
my time than I would like, especially considering how close we are
supposed to be to release. Michael, are there any mac kernel updates?
I *really* will try and merge the patches asap, but I made my job a
lot harder by upgrading to 2.0.33pl1 as it contains changes to head.S
which I'm going to have to somehow merge with your changes.. ickness
(C merging I can manage.. assembly? wah). If not I'll go with the,
uh.. 980403 patches I have.
