This is the last post I am making to this thread ... and maybe to this
list in general.  During the build processes, here are the files that we
have had to add (at various times) to get packages to build.  I have no
idea if this list is current (we first try to build without add anything
and test it), then we add packages if the testing says we need to.

As I said before, this is not necessarily a current list, it is more of
a starting point if something fails a "link check".
