I have no idea why this was removed, other than that I screwed up by
calling this 'i486' rather than 'noarch' and no one caught it. ;) The
buildscript just copies some cursors. I don't see how it could fail on
Slackware 13 in 32 or 64 bit. Anyway, there's nothing much to maintain -
I don't think the Debian tarball has changed in years - I just had to
revise a URL when they moved it once. Anyway, I'm happy to keep
maintaining most all my stuff, at least for now. It'll just take me
awhile to get Slack64 on my 64-bit machine to test (still running
Slack12.2/32 on it at the moment).

Incidentally, I just rebuilt


out of the 12.2 repo and all of these worked fine on Slack13/32. If
someone could test on 64, I could re-upload those of them that I
maintain. Or it'll just have to wait.

The only thing that's failed so far is gtkdialog. I'll look into it and
if it's an easy fix, I'll do it but, if not, I may drop that one. (It
hasn't been updated upstream in a couple of years.)
