gtk3 broken with Xorg 7.6

The "guilty" is from Xlibs.tcz...Was it compiled with some custom option?

To check it, you can do (with Xorg running):
Untar and cd into

--- Code: ---tc@box:~/libX11-1.4.0$ tce-load -iw compiletc Xorg-7.6-dev libxcb-dev  #compile dependencies
tc@box:~/libX11-1.4.0$ ./configure --prefix=/usr  # /usr because libX11 from Xlibs is into /usr/lib
tc@box:~/libX11-1.4.0$ make
tc@box:~/libX11-1.4.0$ sudo make install  # overwrite libX11

--- End code ---

Then you can run gtk3 applications without problems...(Only tested with Xorg 7.6)

Jason W:
Thanks for the find.  I don't maintain Xorg but maybe Curaga can perhaps test a rebuild and if this is the case perhaps update Xlibs.

Even easier: Since libx11-xcb.tcz has correct files we can do:

--- Code: ---tc@box:~$ tce-load -iw libx11-xcb
tc@box:~$ sudo ln -f -s /tmp/tcloop/libx11-xcb/usr/local/lib/ /usr/lib/
tc@box:~$ sudo ln -f -s /tmp/tcloop/libx11-xcb/usr/local/lib/ /usr/lib/
tc@box:~$ sudo ln -f -s /tmp/tcloop/libx11-xcb/usr/local/lib/ /usr/lib/

--- End code ---

With this, we change symbolic links to point to libX11 from libx11-xcb instead from Xlibs.

And then we can do:

--- Code: ---tc@box:~$ scm-load -iw l3afpad
tc@box:~$ l3afpad
--- End code ---

Jason W:
That is ok as a workaround but I will pm Curaga and see if he is interested in rebuilding libX11.

Our libX11 is 1.3.6, a standard working build. It seems like gtk3 requires xcb (which libX11 starting 1.4.0 also requires).

I'm not willing to force-add that bloat to the base (Xlibs) just yet. As I see it now, it's 5.0 material.
