Bug#111050: xc/programs/rstart/contexts/@Aliases symlinks lost



rstartd(1):

       For  installation  ease,  the  "contexts" directory in the
       distribution contains a file "@Aliases" which lists a con­
       text name and aliases for that context.  This file is used
       to make symlinks in the contexts and commands directories.


i haven't downloaded the (large) debian source packages, but upstream
CVS certainly seems to have this @Aliases file:
 http://cvsweb.xfree86.org/cvsweb/xc/programs/rstart/contexts/@Aliases

and xc/programs/rstart/Imakefile looks to be doing the right things
with it (InstallAliases()):
 http://cvsweb.xfree86.org/cvsweb/xc/programs/rstart/Imakefile?rev=3.11&content-type=text/x-cvsweb-markup


perhaps this Imakefile install target is not being run or these links
are being lost during the debian packaging?


(for people reading this bug: a temporary workaround is to specify the
 existing context explicitly, ie "rstart -c x11r6 hostname command")
