To clarify - pkgsrc targets X11R7 or later for building X apps,
whether that is native or modular.

Given this, unless someone is volunteering to maintain support for
Xfree86 or other X versions the X11_TYPE should default to modular for
those platforms.

So, so we have anyone willing to maintain support for building against
(native) pre X11R7 in pkgsrc?
