Comment from Xorg developer:

Stop building the devel subpackage in Fedora and RHEL > 8,
no new code should try to use this library,
the X server hasn't implemented it in over 10 years

In result i have to build mate-settings-demon, mate-screensaver and mate-control-center without it.
I have no idea about the consequences.
Does anyone know for what libXxf86misc is used?
Or better for what we use it in mate-screensaver?

@mate-desktop/contributors @mate-desktop/core-team @mate-desktop/documentation-team
Any idea?

I cannot even FIND this package in Debian Unstable, is it included in something else here, or an optional dependency that does not get built?
