These are pretty reasonable suggestions. You will also need to put
forms.h somewhere. To be consistent with the above, it will go in
Commonly /usr/include/X11/ is a symbolic link to the directory
above. Because of that, users will #include forms.h by doing:
Alternatively, if you put form.h in /usr/include, users can simply say:
Either /usr/X11R6/include/X11/ or /usr/include/ is acceptable to me.
What do others think?
I am looking at the Red Hat distribution and SuSE distribution of
Linux right now.
Red Hat tend to keep /usr/X11R6/lib strictly for the core X
Window development libraries, such as libX11.so, libXt.so, etc.,
and puts all other libraries, X related or not, in /usr/lib.
SuSE lumps all X related libraries in /usr/X11R6/lib.
Again, I don't have a preference one way or another.
