OK.  The box has a 6GB disk, which after a small rescue-linux and one
hurd partition has a lot of free space, so no problems there.

Understood.  I'll try the patch out tonight, Norwegian time.

Actually not, as this would crash with /usr/X11R6/lib/X11, which
actually has a lot of useful stuff in it.  I'll just cross my fingers
hoping that nobody explicitly uses /usr/lib/X11.

I'll try that tonight too.  (busy night...  ;)

Oops, didn't try that.  With "works", I meant "Actually started, even
though I was not root, and xterm is a setgid application linking against
X11 libraries, meaning that LD_LIBRARY_PATH would be stripped".

When in doubt: Recompile.
