XFree 4.2.1-5 alpha quality debs
After overhauling a rules file and being absent from my
Hurd work for quite some time now I've finally managed
to build the XFree 4.2.1-5 debs. These are now to be
considered old since there is at least a -6, as well as
the 4.3 effort by Robert.
However, I thought I'd share my results and maybe gain
some alpha-testers since I haven't tested them myself yet.
That means you cannot bug me with questions if nothing
works or totally wrecks havoc of your system.

There are still some things I need to fix before I can
put an end to this effort (in the following order):
* Move my "patches" to 4.2.1-6
* Get the man pages to build cleanly (currently missing)
* Fix the shlibs.local
* Try with Neals' pthreads
* Fix the Packages[.gz] on the ftp.
