Description Leo 2006-12-20 13:37:58 EST
Description of problem:
The autoconf in FC6 will check libXt-devel for deciding window_system when it is
not necessary. For example in compiling Emacs with GTK, if libXt-devel is not
installed, the configure script generated by autoconf 2.59 won't be able to
detect the window_system while GTK Emacs doesn't link to libXt at all.

This bug seems to have been fixed in 2.60 see the change log:

Comment 2 Patrice Dumas 2007-03-29 04:33:39 EDT
This was already fixed (by Karsten), so I close

* Tue May 16 2006 Karsten Hopp <karsten....> 2.59-8
- try to link with libX11 instead of libXt

* Wed Feb 15 2006 Karsten Hopp <karsten....> 2.59-7
- XrmInitialize takes no argument (#181340)

* Mon Feb 06 2006 Karsten Hopp <karsten....> 2.59-6
- check for Xlib.h instead of Intrinsic.h to find X11 headers
