I can't find a single reference to X.org in any of this. I assume
the presence of the xorg source tree implies that it's possible to
use it, and my mk.conf had "X11_TYPE=xorg" set, so I assume that worked
at some point.
Where should I look for documentation detailing the X11_TYPE options?
It's not mentioned by build.sh, it's not mentioned in mk.conf(5), and
I really just can't find any references to it. I found a recent (August
23, 2007) blog entry about using the modular X.org server, which
referred to X11_TYPE... But I can't find any makefiles or scripts
which refer to it.
