Hi all!

Hartmut Henkel build new x86_64 binaries on Debian/sarge, which seems to
be the oldest existing system. The problem with the current binaries
lies in the fact that they are linked against the newer Xorg libraries
which includes a linking with libXau.so, which is not available on
XFree86/older systems.

Testing of these binaries have been done by Hartmut and Reinhard
(Kotucha), but if x86_64 people want to do other testing please let us

Otherwise I propose to check in the current binaries ....

Any comments?

Best wishes
