Can anybody clue me in why "cacti" isn't building?  I obv'ly see the
stderr's, but want to know What now>

This is after the 3D screen stuff.

checking whether to build static libraries... yes
checking for vasprintf... yes
checking for ssize_t... yes
checking for pkg-config... /usr/local/bin/pkg-config
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
checking for XCB... configure: error: Package requirements (xcb >=
1.4) were not met:

Requested 'xcb >= 1.4' but version of XCB is 1.2

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables XCB_CFLAGS
and XCB_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

an overview of all packages installed on your system (e.g. an `ls

    all his energy on resisting its deadly pressure.  If a man comes out of

    on improving in spite of everything.  Just think what he might have done 
        without that pressure." --Jiri Mucha, *Living and Partly Living*
