correct indeed!
This is great news and thanks for the effort.

No, unfortunately no. The ball was left at Guilhem but he is extremely  
busy probably, I wrote him recently but hd no reply yet. He was working on  
the event problem in our AWT.

NetBSD/x86 and Linux/x86 are reasonable, I'll receck thoug after the  
changes by guilhem.

For some other platforms I am waiting for dalibro to remove or improve the  
"GIF" check so I can build xawt without having gif installed, which was  
previously possible except on some unfortunate condition which I don't  
remember and which may need to be handled more smartly.

Unfortunately my NetBSD x86 box is in bad state since months, but I may  
try on linux... it will take some time though!
