Ok, I've now managed to compile all of the libs with some tweaking.
Some of the libraries require much more specific linking of other myth
libs to resolve all the references.
Currently the libraries are linking in things like libXext. I assume
this is undesirable from what you say and that it is down to an
incorrect #define somewhere?
