  That's excellent. Where can I get the -sru sources? I was (in my spare time --
ha) going to apply and build the latest 3.5.13 on Arch with all the latest libs
and gcc 4.7.1. Thinking through it, libpng15 and gcc47 changes should be the
only changes required. If you can give me a link to the -sru sources, that would
be great and cut down on the tinkering I have to do. Thanks.
