Interestingly enough, compiling the same version of libX11 on my computer does
not deadlock. Compiling with the extra patches and configure flags from the spec
file still does not deadlock. Compiling with rpmbuild will deadlock every single
time - I guess CFLAGS are breaking it.. FORTIFY_SOURCE, GNU_HASH and such..?
This is the 32-bit version of libX11 on amd x86_64, in case that makes any
difference... libX11-1.0.3-4.fc6, Fedora Rawhide.
