Description Kaiting Chen 2005-02-14 16:10:11 UTC
I emerge xorg-x11 without the xprint flag because I don't want xprint. However, the libXprintUtil.a and libXprintAppUtil.a libraries are still in /usr/lib. In addition, there are some static libraries with no shared "counterpart". I suspect that these libraries might also be libraries that I don't really want. For instance, libfntstubs.a.

Reproducible: Always

The xprint ones come along with libXp, which is needed so motif and java don't

In xc/lib/Imakefile:
#if BuildXprintLib
XPRINTLIBDIRS = Xp XprintUtil XprintAppUtil

As for any others, please investigate and find out the story, then reopen the
bug if necessary.
