Indeed! It violates policy. How do I file a bug report against this? I have to
develop on a 486 with 200MB of disk space. It works with slink but I did not
install potato yet. On my workstation the upgrade to potato wasted about 40MB
o disk space IIRC. Most of that was from devel packages.

BTW: I switched to Debian because of its smaller disk footprint (than SuXE for
example). And it's not really hard to guess from the package names what is
needed for development:

torsten@pulsar:~ $ apt-cache dumpavail|grep '^Package:.*xlib'
Package: xlib6-altdev
Package: xlib6g-dev
Package: xlib6g-static
Package: xlib6-static
Package: xlib6g
Package: xlib6

I really like this! A big thanks to Branden and the rest of the X Strike
