comment What to do after cancelled “rm -rf /usr/” on Arch?
@Anna - please update your question if and when you try something, so that at least I know what to do for my Arch installations. I think you've hit a corner case - not many people have done what you've done, at least publically. Upvoted answers might be wrong answers in your situation.

"I don't want to depend on an outside service." What hekevintran wrote. Do it yourself, if you possibly can. Don't let corporations take over the internet, they way they have Real Life.

comment which distributions to test for successful compilation?
One more thing, which is a bit outside your question, but not far. If you can get access to a SPARC/Solaris system, you may flush out mis-aligned pointer and memory problems. SPARC hardware is really finicky about that sort of thing.

comment which distributions to test for successful compilation?
I'll also recommend Arch and Slackware. If you have an up-to-date Arch install, you've got the latest compilers and libraries. Your compilation will work in the future. Slackware emphasizes stability, so if you compile on slackware, people who don't have whatever's currently in vogue will be able to compile. They also have radically different package systems. I mean, you can mostly install a Red Hat rpm on a SuSE box, but you may flush out problems with Slackware or Arch packaging.

comment How can I improve my productivity in Linux?
I don't know if Zsh is a separate install: it is for Arch linux, but I don't know what distro you use. I'm sure Zsh offers git integration, but I haven't needed that. X11 startups usually run a script $HOME/.xinitrc. .xinitrc in turn runs xrdb -merge $HOME/.Xresources Those "resources" are settings and so forth that the X11 server communicates to clients that ask for them. Almost all clients do ask.
