indeed, modular Xorg from pkgsrc-2013Q2 is broken on netbsd-6. NetBSD's
Xorg is apparently at 1.10.6 (1.10.3 for netbsd-6) and doesn't require
KMS, while modular Xorg in pkgsrc-2013Q2 is at 1.12.4 and does require
KMS - which we do not have yet.

I am wondering what our options could be to get back to a working state
with modular Xorg on netbsd-6. I guess Taylor wouldn't mind some help
implementing KMS. Any other ideas?
