Ah, didn't realize that was you. rofl... As the saying goes, good  
thing you weren't a snake -- otherwise I'd be dead =o....

I'll fix up a patch for you soon.

Do this on a compiled tree please --

sh -c 'for i in `find -type f`; if ldd "$i" | grep -q libX11; then  
echo "$i depends on libX11.so"; fi; done'
