xfree86 unbuildable on ppc
Could someone explain to me the point of releasing
Xfree86 4.1.0-15 as is when clearly patch #065 was
going to break builds on most non-intel arches?
* patch #065: raped again by Herbert Xu and Ben Collins; you're not
"supposed to" Build-Depend on a kernel package and at the same time the
glibc versions of the kernel headers exclude SiS DRM ioctls that we need
#defined to compile properly. Kludge these #defines into sis_alloc.c
because, of course, it's XFree86's job to know what the uderlying kernel's
ioctl numbers are. While we're at it, why don't we just stop using
standardized constants in our C programs altogether? :-P Oh, by the way,
these are the ioctl's for i386 Linux. Talk to Herbert and Ben if this
sucks for you. (Closes: #139511)
I simply don't see the logic at play here considering
we're supposed to be closing in on woody's release.
