Yes, we do know. However, 1.9.0 _has_ been built against XFree 4.4, and
also XFree 8.3 with NeedFunctionPrototypes defined to be 1. _Xconst
should be defined, so the problem seems to be with `slackware-current'
(whatever that is) rather than XFree 4.4. Does adding
#define _Xconst const
#endif /* _Xconst */
help? (That's inside #if NeedFunctionPrototypes in the headers I have.)
