i've just been leaving the numbers as they are. sometimes if there is  
a new version of some program or something available and the old one  
isn't compiling i'll give the new version a try, but other than that  
i just stick to the same numbers

you have to delete the old version. xentac also gave me a few things  
to make regenerating the dbs easier. a patched gensync so you don't  
need the pkgbuilds and just the packages. also i got a script for  
syncing with svn, its supposed to be like abs it uses wget to sync  
get the latest pkgbuilds from the svn repo. i'll build a new pacman  
package with the changes soon...

also forgot to mention i recompiled pekwm today and it worked fine  
for me. still haven't recompiled xorg or the nvidia driver, i've been  
trying to get orbit2 to work.
