In the README.rpmbuild it should be
./configure --enable-docs
./configure --enable docs
(the latter leads to ./configure failure)

On Mageia, an rpm based distro, it is libxpm-devel and libmesagl1-devel
for the BuildDepends in libxforms.spec

With those changes it compiles. Have not yet tested it.

I notice that the xforms rpms on epel are xforms and xforms-devel.

The xforms-doc rpm (with all of the example code and whatnot) is not there.

Neither fedora (or epel) ever shipped a xforms-doc pkg as far as I'm
aware.  Is this an implicit request that it should?  If so, what
content should it contain exactly?  Stuff from demos/ ?

No, the demo programs aren't the documentation,

OK, I won't include demos/ (even though the embedded xforms.spec in
the tarball does exactly that).

What I meant is that the "demos" aren't the whole documenation,
but they should definitely be considered as part of the docu-
mentation. Sorry if I was unclear - I had misunderstood you as
asking if the demos are all that is the documentation. So,
please leave them in since they are often refered to from the
text of the documentation!

Thank you and sorry for the confusion I caused!
