The sets that match "x*3" are for native builds of xsrc/xc (XFree86 3.x)
The sets that match "x*4" are for native builds of xsrc/xfree/xc (XFree86 4.x)
Both of these will be deprecated in the near future.
The sets that match "x*[^34]" are for reachover builds from src/x11
of xsrc/xfree/xc (XFree86 4.x).

I don't understand what you're doing to prevent the build from
Could you send the output of
./build.sh [your-build.sh-options] params
My laptop is running a very recent build of src & src/x11, built with
./build.sh -V MKX11=yes release sets
To upgrade the laptop, I extract the following sets to `/':
base comp games man misc text xbase xcomp xfont xserver
I manually merged the contents of xetc.tgz, and used the following to
apply any necessary changes from etc.tgz:
pax -zrpe -f /path/to/etc.tgz
./etc/postinstall -s `pwd` fix
rm -rf /tmp/foo
