These are all arch: all packages, so they have to be either 3.3.6-2 or
4.0.2-1 on all architectures or on none. I guess that's probably not a
problem though?

Actually, hmm. Did you also manage to get xutils to build? The X4 versions
of the fonts seem to depend on that package.

xlib6 (the libc5 version of xlib6g) is apparently now a part of xfree86v3;
so at somepoint before release either that package will need to be built
for arm, or the few things that depend on it will need to be rebuilt with
xlib6g, I guess.

But anyway, I can keep all these around in woody for m68k (since they're
all arch: any packages), even while upgrading all of:

It'll be a bit hacky, but it should work okay.

I think so. Branden?
