A little patch resetting DFLT_XKB_CONFIG_ROOT to /usr/share/X11/xkb

Description of problem:

DFLT_XKB_CONFIG_ROOT is hard coded to /usr/lib/X11/xkb in libxkcommon's xkbpath.c whereas Fedora stores the keyboard configuration and maps in /usr/share/X11/xkb.

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

Fedora 17

How reproducible:

Building Weston and running it. xkb_compile_keymap_from_rules() fails at run-time.

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:

Comment 1 Ilyes Gouta 2012-03-04 12:13:00 EST
Better, use the configure-time --with-xkb-config-root= option for libxbcommon, set to /usr/share/X11/xkb.
