I noticed that too.

Most likely.  I didn't do a lot of banging on the server (in fact, I
don't even have a monitor hooked up to my NetWinder at the moment).
My main concern at this point was getting the X libraries into the
archive just to satisfy all the dependencies.

Strange.  I've got a record of me uploading xfree86 3.3.5 back in
September.  But it's not there.  Hmmm.

Perhaps I'll have to rebuild it again.  (not that it will fix your problems)
