I think the reason that why NetBSD use XFree86 4 instead of X11R6.6 is
new hardware supporting. XFree86 object on x86 hardware supporting so
we can use more newer VGA cards on our PCs. But I think since XFree86
drive from X11R6.X, it should be ported their VGA drivers back to
X11R6.X easily. And I feel recently XFree86 release sources seems to
blow up a little. And for me who use the old-old VGA card, the new features
adding is more important than hardware supporting. So I prefer to use
X11R6.6 than XFree86 4.X. Just my little view. :)
