Making debian package of X11R6.7 (or XFree86 4.4.0)?


I've downloaded and compiled X11R6.7 (and also XFree86 4.4.0).
Then I installed Xorg (make install install.man). But, that
of course results in problems with the Debian packages depending
on X (xbase-common, xbase-clients, etc).

Either I make a proper Debian package of X or setup a dummy
package that pretends to provide everything needed.

What would your suggestion be?

In any way, it would be helpful to get a pointer to instructions
on how to make X a Debian package. There shurely must be a package
description for XFree86 4.3, could you help me find it?

I've never made Debian packages before, so I'm a newbie, unfortunately.

I'm running Debian sarge, kernel 2.6.5 on a Dell Inspiron 9100
with an ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 and am trying to get as much
support for the M12 chip as possible.

thanks in advance,
