Re: lintian should warn about /usr/X11R6 usage being disallowed


I think I'm going to make a Lintian check for all packages that use
/usr/X11R6 except those where $source{$binpkg} eq "xfree86"
(half-pseudo-code there).

AIUI, Overfiend only added the imake exception into policy so that less
packages need immediate fixing (policy-is-not-a-stick policy :), not because
they don't actually need fixing to get out of the X-version-specific
hierarchy and into the normal places.

Lintian should simply barf on these packages since fixing Imakefiles in
build systems that aren't monstrous like X's own isn't really all that hard.


     2. That which causes joy or happiness.
