Re: recompile needed for xlib6g (>= 3.3.5-1) instead of (>= 22.214.171.124a-2) ?

As far as xlib6g is concerned, I don't think it does matter.
As a general rule, as long as you can run the result in potato without
using oldlibs packages, it should be fine. [ Personal note: Most of the
packages I maintain depend on libc6 and nothing more. For this reason I
have not upgraded to potato yet. This way my uploads are usable by both
slink and potato users ].
BTW: If libforms0.88 is actually the "current" libforms in potato, then
you could have even avoided completely the upgrade of libc6 and compilers.
It seems your package should run ok on a potato machine even if it was
compiled on a slink system.
