I have compiled the X -10 version but when I installed it on my own
workstation, something went wrong and I could not start X anymore.
Because of this, I did not yet upload the new version. In the meantime
I found that the 'bdftopcf' binary in my -10 version does not work
properly and consequently X does not find some necessary fonts on
I will upload -10 as soon as I have fixed this.
Thanks again for the report.
