Adding graphics support to the links package in core
I'm thinking about adding graphics support to the links package in
core. By doing this, it'll save some time and work as there is
currently a links-g package in community that provides links with
graphics support (which I'm not maintaining, FTR). So it make sense
to merge them.
I intend to implement this by having 2 binaries in the package:
- links: the text-only version (equivalent of the current links package)
- xlinks: the version with graphics and framebuffer support
(equivalent of the links-g package)
Obviously, the package will have makedepends and optdepends on X and
graphic libraries from the extra repo but as several core package
already do so, I don't think there'll be a problem.
