Wary: more packages compiled

I am continuing to compile packages in the new Wary environment. I am aiming for everything to be compiled from source in this environment, for maximum compatibility.

The most recent that I have compiled:

mhwaveedit 1.4.20
epdfview 0.1.7
isomaster 1.3.7
homebank 4.3
inkscapelite 3.36.3, with libgnomeprint and libgnomeprintui deps.

Note that for this new Wary, I have created _DOC and _NLS PETs for all packages.

I have compiled osmo 0.2.10 in Wary, and the dependency libical 0.44. The latter was compiled as a static library, so got incorporated into the 'osmo' executable.

I am hoping Abiword is on the list as .doc files crash the current version installed in Wary 0.7

hv3 web browser
Hi Barry a Mandrake user has updated hv3 to use nice icons and also it now uses JavaScript, the Mandrake sources are located ftp://ftp.icm.edu.pl/vol/rzm1/linux-mandriva/devel/cooker/SRPMS/contrib/release/tkhtml3-3.0-0.20081201.6mdv2010.0.src.rpm
It comes with 2 patches and uses 2 deps for java script. gc6 and see-3 both are small.
I came across this reading this page and went on a long hunt for the sources
below is a pic on 2.14X

Was homebank compiled with support to import ofx files?

Re ofx
No, because ofx and the deps it needs are too big. A special homebank PET could be created, but not builtin to Puppy.

Mesa package for Wary
Built-in Mesa package in Wary 070 produces much better performance than in other puppies. I measure about 220% higher speed compared to Lupu and 200% to Dpup based on glxgears and glxheads using my ancien machine.
This means that glxheads' triangle rotates three times faster in Wary. However, glxgears' default size gears do not rotate but only vibrate in Wary, while the number of processed frames are three times bigger than the "rotating" puppies.
In Wary, it would be nice to have a dialog/config file that lets users tune mesa settings.
Maybe there is a good way to do this. In this case the Help should be extended.

Wary has problem with Intel 82G33/G31 Graphics Controller
I have reported in the Wary 0.7 mix-n-match feedback thread in the Forum a problem that Wary has with the Intel 82G33/31 Express Integrated Graphics Controller. Trying to set Xorg in Wary 070 (kernels and causes a fatal crash. Quirky 130 does not have this problem.

The last time I compiled homebank with ofx, the ofx functionality was broken anyways.
