 Series applied to master, thanks.

 For this one, I edited the subject line:

package/x11r7/xlib_libX11: don't require static libc on host

No capitalisation after : and no period at the end.

 Also, commit message should be wrapped at 72 columns. So I fixed that as well.

 I've also tried to find a better solution but couldn't find any.

 Could you report this problem upstream? You can add to it that a standard
native build (not even cross-compiled) fails on Fedora 30 because of this. Well,
TBH I haven't tried but I expect it fails :-)
