Is this the difference between the 'release' version and the 'indication of 
the binary compatibility of the libraries' version thingy that confused us 
way back when? Is there no place that we can ask for advice? Someone must 
understand this stuff.

I don't know about you, but I think of this release as the 'autotools' 
release. Would be nice therefore if we finished it off before release and 
never had to worry about any of this crap ever again...

I'll have a go.

Yes. Where would it go? In INSTALL, or is that simply the generic stuff.

Incidentally, (now that I have repaired your breakage of 'make rpmdist' ;-P), 
would it make sense to create an xforms-demos src rpm. I guess that there is 
little point creating a binary of same... Hmmm, I'm not sure that would work, 
since the Makefile assumes that fdesign is to be found in ../fdesign/fdesign.

Let's leave that then ;-)
