As if I had... Talking to Bernd, he hinted at setting

 	.if ${MACHINE} == "alpha"
 	XSERVER_XFREE86=        yes

in src/x11/Xserver/Makefile.common, but I'm not (yet) sure what that 
actually does, i.e. if it even will install the X server in destdir.

The next question would be about set lists - I see there's 
src/distrib/sets/lists/xserver and .../xserver4 - I guess the latter 
here's the right one?
