Because they support it.  Get it through your head: this is not
somebody's personal hobby any more.  This is business.

    B0Ti> If it chokes during compile, I wouldn't blame anyone.

You're sure bitching a lot here!

Look, it's an IQ test.  If you can't figure out how to wank the kernel
headers you've got into the glibc compile, you have no business
compiling with anything but the standard headers.  I know you can pass
that test; so just do it.

There will be a kernel-headers package somewhere, glibc should depend
on it.

I'm sure there's a statement on this somewhere in the glic sources and
also in the Debian dev guide.  I just trust Ulrich on this one.

Remove the offending fonts from your fontpath:

	    xset -fp /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/horked-fonts

(See man xset for more details.)  Then try running xdvi.

Hrm.  Maybe your installation is broken?

All looks cool to me.  My guess is that XVideo is an extension
supplied by v4l which requires DGA.  When the DGA module went missing,
XVideo went AWOL too.
