I made sure that it works with those three. I designed them from the
get-go to work with it. If they actually do not, kindly report the
Traditionally we've had multiple linux_base ports. I have no problem with
that tradition--it's not in our power to unify all the Linux
distributions, nor for that matter all the X11 distributions!

The patch you sent me would have added a dependency on this port to the
Linux ports which need X11 (presently, I ask users to install this port
manually). I don't see how my commit conflicts with the patch you sent
me. Does this commit create an actual problem?
