Description Michal Jaegermann 2001-04-12 23:18:33 EDT
During compilation 'nxterm' is produced with a help of the following
command 'ln -f xterm nxterm' but later 'xterm' goes into 'XFree86'
rpm while 'nxterm' ends up in 'XFree86-tools' thus splitting this
quite sizeable binary in two.

It is quite likely that the same applies not only to "rawhide" but
I did not check.

Darn, you've got a good eye!!  I dunno when that occured, likely from
the start of 4.x packaging.  I've moved the nxterm binary into the same
package as xterm.  This will be in the -9 release.  Thanks for the
catch!  Much appreciated.
