Xdmx currently has a hardcoded dependency on xaw7 even though it works nicely
with xaw8 as well -- this breaks building on "no-legacy" systems.

Patch that checks for both xaw8 and xaw7
A better fix would be providing a generic xaw.pc in libXaw and then use a
dependency on xaw >= 7.0
i find it humorous that xaw is considered for inclusion in a "no legacy" system
in the first place.
It's a necessary evil as long as openoffice.org keeps linking to it

So, quick check of that against an FC5 box. The only file in
/usr/lib/openoffice.org2.0/program that links against libXaw is pluginapp.bin.
If you run comm against the list of symbols defined in libXaw, and the list of
symbols required by pluginapp.bin, you find zero symbols in common. In other
words, pluginapp.bin doesn't actually need to be linked against libXaw.
Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys. Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.
xaw8 is gone.
