If they build fine using the newer versions, please consider
submitting updated scripts to us.  Granted, we'll get to the
mailing list reports eventually, but at least as far as I'm
concerned, the best way to ensure that I don't forget about
it is to submit the update via our normal submission process.

Keep reading - a few comments inlined.

I've (finally) got the original "source" tarball for this pulled
down - damn, that's huge.

Unless something's changed, XFE (X File Explorer) won't build against
any fox-toolkit version later than 1.4.x.  I'm working on this one
right now, but since nobody in my household uses XFE any more, I lack
the inspiration to chase this down.  If anyone's looking for something
to do, there's a hint :)
