It was. Native X11 I can cross-build on a faster machine. That's one of the
main reasons for having X11 in base, isn't it?

How many packages does modular X11 consist of, typically? And they'll want
to get re-built whenever png, jpeg, perl & friends see an update. If one of
the packages doesn't build then - too bad, it's tier two, after all. No
