I've tried to compile Xfsft from the source, but the documentation is
less than helpful to me (I'm not a newbie, and compile lots of stuff
from scratch and tweak makefiles if necessary -- I had to * sorry).
Specifically the BUILDING File uses the convention to `xc` to represent
the root of the X source tree. Is this /usr/X11R6/include? What is the

I'll go so far as to suggest that this BUILDING file document how a user

It then mentions that in xc/lib, which I'm assuming is now
/usr/X11R6/lib/Server/lib, it's necessary to apply patch libfont.patch.

font server, I don't want to build the X server. I just want the source

source, if I only need a fraction of it.
Modularization is a good thing.
I'd appreciate any assistance.
