Nitpicking: libxi-dev check


as someone else[1] and myself (and probably others) figured out,
libxi-dev must be installed in order to compile gnuradio on
Ubuntu Natty, otherwise you’ll get a

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lXi

message. Shouldn’t this be caught by the configure script? If so, I
guess config/grc_qtgui.m4 could use an extra line or two.

Yes, it probably should. Haven’t gotten there yet.
