You mean the Imake rules and template files right?

I don't understand.  Just because the Imake rules builders change, why 
does that mean that X has to be rebuilt?  It's not like we're changing 
locations of files or anything?  AFAIK, it's just going to be a 
convenience for debian X package maintainers.  So when they do 'make 
makefiles' or 'xmkmf -a' they actually get makefiles which conform to 
local policy.

I heartily agree that the local Imake rules should conform to policy, and 
agree this bug should be filed.
