Description of problem:

When starting xpra on a bare-minimum Fedora system, I see this:
Error running "xauth add :100 MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 ...": [Errno 2] No such file or directory

Trying to run xauth manually confirms that it is not installed:
$ xauth
bash: xauth: command not found

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to start xpra on a Fedora system without xauth

Thanks for the report Dennis, really glad to see someone testing the 0.16 rawhide packages.

This should be fixed in new build 0.16.2-1.
