FYI, I have a fix for that. Unfortunately, while the Xorg ports people
were fast on nuking sparc64 support from libpciaccess, they are now
extra-cautious on adding it back ...
I was getting nowhere with rolling the ports back to
before the latest Xorg updates. It is surprisingly
hard to move the tree back and have a consistent
set of installed ports. Some will have been marked
vulnerable, others (e.g. pkg) refuse to go back
So, many thanks for your help.
Finally, I gather from what I read in ports@
in the last couple of weeks that the new Xorg is
unlikely to work on sparc64 ever and the
old (current) will no longer be supported
after a while, so future, say 2-3 years ahead
of X on sparc64 looks bleak, right?
