I just checked, and lesstif only depends on the Xlibs. I haven't checked
yet, and don't plan to (that's a huge job!), if any of the Xlib
interfaces use any of the types that changed sizes, however.
So, being the conscientious package maintainer that I am, do I go ahead and
release a new test lesstif package before the Xlibs have been recompiled,
or do I wait?
lesstif should come out the same regardless. But depending on
the types used in the Xlib interfaces, my new lesstif test package may be
broken until a new Xlib test package is installed and released.
Do I have this right?
