[Xquartz-dev] What's the story with Xaw3d?

Well I've been building away on the Freedom from MacPorts front - and  
now have a working gtk+ environment - running against the 2.3.3 X11  
libraries. It's mostly really easy apart from the jpeg library which  
needs some help to patch its files for libtool (thanks to MacPorts for  
Many thanks for the pkginfo files in /usr/X11/lib!!!

However - gtk-demo (and my emacs compiled with gtk) says:

Xlib:  extension "RANDR" missing on display "/tmp/launch-HZZyYL/:0".

which is odd because the library is there. I figure I can disable this  
in the GTK build - but wondered if it was worth flagging.

This is what I did originally.
Why can't MacPorts offer an option to build against the installed X11
