Ah, so in netbsd-9 amiga was using the in-tree 1.10 server, while in
netbsd-10 and later its using 1.20 (NetBSD ships both to allow for
ports using older drivers)

I _could_ pullup the changes, complete with any changes to switch
amiga to xorg-server 1.20 (all all the distrib and set changes). I'm
not sure it would be accepted, given that the netbsd-10 release
process is underway and amiga binaries are already available

I'm willing to be persuaded if people really think it's worth it?
Otherwise, Carlos - would you be able to test netbsd-10 from the above

Excellent, if no-one else has any objections I may take a pass in
-current for that, looking towards pulling up to -10 before its full

I'm trying to throw in some time on pullups and builds here as they
should be relatively quick for me to do, but I'm not precious about
any of this, and I really don't want to step on anything anyone else
might want to do or feel like is more their area (please just poke me
in the latter case).
