Description Paul Dunwoody 2005-12-10 14:10:31 UTC
I downgraded xorg-x11 from the latest modular version to 6.8.2-r6.  libXdmcp was
not installed for some reason, and other programs started complaining.  I
unmerged and remerged xorg-x11, but it still wasn't installed.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Downgrade from Modular xorg-x11
2. emerge xorg-x11

Actual Results:  
libXdmcp was not installed

Expected Results:  
This library should have been installed by the xorg-x11 ebuild.

6.8.2 does not build a shared version of libXdmcp, only static. You will need to
rebuild any packages that linked against a shared libXdmcp.
