It's not intentional. It's an unfortunate side effect of my tripping
over an NFS server bug (PR #11618) which totally hoses X builds. 

So I need to do a little disk reorganization before I can make this
build, and it didn't happen before 1.5. Sorry about that.

I'd guess a mismatch of the X server version and the kernel, but I
haven't looked at the XKERNEL setup in a long time.
