I speak of the libs which must be separately installed in /sw or 

When building the release, I had the problem of having one (freetype) 
correctly named but of the wrong version in X11R6. This resulted in 
drawing bug. Having one set of correct libs available as separate 
download would insure that even the not too experienced but curious 
could build from source.

Then when finally installing the good one (from another location on the 
disk), the angry god of paths lib make sure that gcc pick up another 
wrong one.
I solved this by putting all external libs (or a link) in the lib tree 
and reducing the path lib to only that and system. As the libs go in a 
separate tree in CVS, there is no drawback for the experienced coders.
