 There is no xcb in -5's native X11. Adding it is a fairly major
 It is possible that we could persuade releng to take it for 5.3, or
 possibly even another massupdate of X like the 5.0 -> 5.1 one, but
 someone has to actually do the work. (There's no way I will ever get

 but at the moment I don't think the chances are too good. :(
