xorg 7.3

Hi:

Maybe the blfs gurus will find this helpfull. 
I've been running xorg 7.3 for a couple of weeks now without any major 
problems. 

Some prerequisites I'm using are:
 lfs-stable as my base,
Mesa-7.0.1,
drm from the base kernel,
libdrm-2.3.0,
xkeyboard-config-1.0,
fontconfig-2.4.2

Immediately I noticed that font rendering must have been improved. Even the 
stock fonts from xorg look good now. 

One irritating problem I had was with my keyboard. The leds did not work for 
CAPS/NUM/SCROLL lock. If somebody else has this problem, you can find my 
patch on the the xorg mailing list. I hope the patch will work with other 
keyboards besides the xorg default.

Attached is my wget file for the libs directory. It is in the build order I 
used to get it all working. Also attached is my build script. It can be used 
to build each directory in the xorg release (e.g. ./build lib). The build 
script does not build prerequisites and it assumes the wget files and sources 
are available. Anyway it is a toy to play around with.

Happy compiling,
Shawn
