Please do builds of the gtk-xemacs sources --with-gtk=no.
Basically what I would like, as soon as possible, is lots of build
reports based on
a cvs checkout of gtk-xemacs-21-2
make beta >beta.err 2>&1
It is important to do the explicit --with-gtk=no, even though that's
the default. The problem is there doesn't seem to be any other way to
recognize gtk-xemacs-21-2 sources in a build report, except for the
tester to put it in explicitly.
--with-gtk=yes reports are of course useful, but they are irrelevant
to whether GTK will be in the release since it will default to OFF.

There seem to be about 10 on Linux, one on OpenBSD, and no others.

If you could run your insane make and submit them all to
xemacs-build-reports, it would be very useful. Then do it again with
warnings cranked far past any sane level, just for kicks. (I doubt I
would be able to interpret them, but it would be very useful in a
post-mortem kind of analysis.)
Doing the "submit the whole bunch" on a regular basis (say, every
couple of weeks) seems like a good idea to me.

There is as of a few hours ago.
