Is John building them? I thought I was! :-) If he is, I need to fill him
in on a few things...

Oh, while I'm on the subject, I really need that patch to the rules script
incorporated for now. For some reason, whenever the modules in
xserver-xfree86 are stripped on Alpha, it renders them unusable. The
patch should allow strip to do it's job for all packages on every arch but
Alpha, so it's safe (this has been tested with every revision thusfar, so
it's still needed).
