Right, right - we're getting a bit off from my request.  Frankly, I 
don't care what you call the libraries, but if you're going to include 
the string "xfc" (without the 'e' at the end), it would be nice if it 
could be "XFC" instead.  so, libXFCcore, or whatever.  That was the only 
point I was trying to make; I don't really care about the -core vs. -ui
