Whatever that might mean.
But the in-tree XFree base source tree is cross-compilable, and we have
not managed to get modular xorg into that shape yet.

Cross-compilablility is a must for the release engineering team for official
NetBSD releases. You can, however, use xorg from pkgsrc on your own machine
easily (a lot of people do that).
