X.Org transition and xlibs-static-* issues

Hi everyone,
   We're in preparation to upload X.Org packages to unstable, and one of
the things which will happen in this transition is a change in the way
xlibs-static-* packages are handled. If your package build-depends on
xlibs-static, you'll have to update your build-depends to deal with the
transition. A list of packages that I am aware of which build-depend on
xlibs-static-* is below, sorted by maintainer. If your package is on this
list, or if I missed you, you may want to check the collection of available
Ubuntu patches for your package[0] to see if your problem has already been

   If your package is not already patched by Ubuntu, then you'll have to
make the transition yourself. A table has been made that maps header files
to new library packages[1], so you need to figure out which headers your
app uses and then add that library to your Build-Depends.

   Another item of note is that Xinerama support can currently be silently
disabled by the build system if Xinerama.h is absent. Please be sure to
pass --enable-xinerama in your builds if you use Xinerama, in order to be
sure that this doesn't happen to you, as it will then fail if Xineram a.h is

   For those of you who want to test your package builds against the new
system, there are packages for x86 built and available, or you can pu ll and
build yourself. The Ubuntu X.Org packages, if you're running them, also
have this change, so you can continue to use them for testing your packages
if you prefer.
