Yup, good job Enrique.  One thing that worries me, LAPTOPS!  If something
needed a tecra disk before, I'll like to be sure it works ok without the
tecra patch now.

Let's see:
Depends: xbase-clients, xfonts-75dpi, xfonts-base, xserver-vga16 |
xserver, xterm, libc6 (>= 2.0.7u), xlib6g (>= 3.3-5)

I guess that means vga16 is prefered (or is it that you can't depend on
just a virtual package).  However, no suggest or recommends vga16, so my
svga server eleminated that depends screen from coming up.
