As far as I can tell, the source to the X packages are nowhere to be
found.  They are cleverly disguised with the same name as Branden's X
packages, but there are absolutely no sparc patches in his source.

There are X packages with source on my site, and I have patches
against a fairly recent version of Branden's source (pre8 of the
package in slink), but they were developed seperately from the
packages in slink (since the source is MIA) and need more testing.

(My packages contain all of the patches from UltraPenguin, plus one
that I have made myself, but I see that Jakub has added some more
creator patches to the UltraPenguin one since then.)
