[Slackbuilds-users] libxmi

Looks like a number of packages got removed due to libxmi not building.
Sorry about this. For some reason they weren't on the untested list? Or
was there a separate broken list that I missed? Anyway, to help
maintainers of dependent packages with testing prior to reopening the
submissions, attached is a revised SlackBuild that fixes the build problem.

Incidentally, maybe other maintainers are struggling with the same
problem of ancient packages that embed ancient automake scripts that
don't know about x86_64.  The solution came from the SlackBuild for

am=$(automake --version | grep "1." | cut -d " " -f 4 | cut -d "." -f 2)
for i in config.guess config.sub depcomp install-sh missing; do
  rm -f $i
  ln -s /usr/share/automake-1.$am/$i $i

I must add, it's a wonderful and remarkable achievement to release the
new SlackBuilds.org repo simultaneously with Slackware 13.0. Wow! Thanks!
