Hi All,

a quick note from a long way from home, and forced use of MS for email:
as it's been explained to me, revisions of big packages (like xfree) are made 
when a number of fixes and updates can be rolled up together.  Martin 
Schlemmer's been working on several fixes and changes to the xfree ebuild, so 
our scrollwheel fix will appear when the rest is ready for release.  It's not 
exactly the most convenient thing for us, since this is an important fix for 
ppc users, but it's also not simply that we're being ignored.  And since I 
don't have access to a gentoo box, it may already be out for all I know :-)  
Anyway, thanks for all the hard work Mark!

David

Hey kainz

I'll post future patches here I guess for now ;)

The patch makes it so that the default options are _not_ redefined on 
ppc (they are currently redefined in the r9 build which was the 
problem).   The current build blindly overrides them with -ansi.

Martin Schlemmer (azarah@g.o) has a copy of the patch and the 
working ebuild as well, and I think he's the xfree maintainer so it 
should be all good, but you maye want to double check with him as well.
