Thanks for bringing this up - I had intended to, but had forgotten.
At the moment it appears that cpp conflicts with elf-gcc, which is
provided by gcc-2.7.2. cpp provides elf-gcc.
I have to install the cpp package to make xrdb work. I have to use
--force-conflicts to install it at the same time as gcc.
This is obviously a bug somewhere. What should be changed? What should I
make xbase depend on?
