Description François Dupoux 2003-05-09 07:58:52 UTC
First, I installed xemacs. gpm was already installed for a long time. I decided to remove 
gpm (emerge unmerge sys-libvs/gpm). xemacs cannot start: 
# xemacs -nw /etc/X11/XF86Config 
xemacs: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object 
file: No such file or directory 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

This is expected behavior: xemacs will link against gpm for mouse support.

Recompiling it should fix it.
