That's helpful information (I'm setting up a new EPIA system to replace
my Cobalt system on 3.99...)

That looks really useful for getting X-org from pkgsrc running, but it
doesn't really help me make the decision between x11 from the base
system, or X-Org modular from pkgsrc.
Is X-org Modular stable enough these days? For a bare-metal bring-up

sets, or not even bother?
