 More importantly, this problem won't be limited to developers.  Though
 the original submitter claimed to compile from svn-trunk, the same
 problem will occur for non-developers using the RPM packages.  The key
 issue is that libX11.so is referenced, but won't exist on the end
 user's machine (unless they install N MB of -devel packages...).

+The question is whether packages are done correctly, maybe the non
+devel package should include the .so file.
+Depending on the micro-version seems like a bad idea to me, and hard
+coding the version numbers on the .config files is just asking for
+something to break on an upgrade.
