Dear Gary,

I already have CLX installed but I would like to use the Mac OS X11  
delivered libraries (not only XLib).

If I undersstood, CLX is an implementation of X11 it is not based on  
the libraries delived with MAC OS X11.

I am doing this partly to learn and practice this kind of taking.

Kind regards
Taoufik
