Re: Changing default X11_TYPE from native to modular for some platforms (Was: What platforms work with X11_TYPE=native)

How do you feel about NetBSD>=5 ports still using XFree86?
Should those ports also be switched to X11_TYPE=modular by default?

I suspect so. Ideally they should be switched to X11R7 native, or
failing that possibly build the X server from XFree86 and everything
else from X11R7.

So how about switch X11_TYPE=modular if X11_PREFIX != /usr/X11R7
(like a pkgtools/x11-links/ instead of OS release version basis?

Would you happen to know what ports are still using XFree86 in current?

NetBSD Port/Feature Cross Reference?
