XFree86 4.1.0-15pre16v1 available for testing

[Please direct follow-ups to debian-x@lists.debian.org; thank you.]


I am announcing this test release to 4 architecture lists as well as the
Debian X list because this release has fixes important to all of these

I have access to PowerPC and IA-64 machines and will be testing builds
on those architectures today (hopefully).

I do, however, need feedback on how well these packages build and work
on ARM and S/390.

Needless to say, these updates are important for the woody release.

You can find these packages at the usual place:

 xfree86 (4.1.0-15pre16v1) unstable; urgency=high
   * patch #065: updated comments to point to Debian mailing list discussion of
     this patch so that people can figure out what's going on

     that #065 does not (thanks, Jack Howarth) (Closes: #141116)
   * patch #067: in the ELF module loader, do not assume that memory returned

     IA-64) (thanks, Bdale Garbee and David Mosberger)

     - xserver-common now declares a versioned conflict against all XFree86 3.x
       X server packages prior to 3.3.6-35, due to the X server wrapper's
       changed expectations about how /etc/X11/X should be handled
       (Closes: #141636)
     - change architecture of x-window-system-core from "all" to "any" so that
       all that XWSC_SPECIAL_DEPENDS stuff actually has a chance to work; also
       updated this package's extended description (thanks, Gerhard Tonn)
   * debian/rules: add special logic to install README and README.fonts files
     due to apparent bug in upstream Imakefile (thanks, Gerhard Tonn)
