19 <application>Xorg</application>, in addition to clearing up some
20 licensing issues with <ulink url="">XFree86</ulink>,
21 introduced a completely auto-tooled build for the X Window system. This
22 means that the packages build and install using the conventional
23 <command>configure</command>, <command>make</command>, and <command>make
24 install</command> commands, as opposed to a proprietary build system that
25 required hand editing of configuration parameters in a C-like syntax.
26 </para>
28 <para>
29 <application>Xorg</application> also brought with it a modular build
30 system. While this separation into modules resulted in full control of the
31 features available to the X server on any given installation, it also made
32 the installation more tedious as it requires installing more than 100
33 different packages to obtain a functional X Window environment. Most large
34 commercial distributions have elected to use <application>Xorg</application>
35 over the <application>XFree86</application> distribution due to both
36 licensing issues and the increased functionality provided by it over
37 <application>XFree86</application>. With the modular build system, also came
38 incremental updates to individual packages. The distribution of
39 <application>Xorg</application> is given a release number by the developers,
40 in this case Xorg-&xorg-version;, and is referred to as the "katamari" by
41 the upstream developers.

46 Additionally, the BLFS book appends a build number
47 to the end of version string to indicate whether a group of incremental
48 updates has been applied, while still retaining the versioning scheme of the
49 upstream developers. For instance, Xorg-&xorg-version;-1 would indicate that
50 this is the 1st release, and is consistent with the katamari, while
51 Xorg-&xorg-version;-2 would indicate that individual package updates have
52 been applied to the katamari.
