Don't be so PC centered :-)
Well, xf86config is for XFree86. The Tadpole is merely a Sun and runs
vanilla X11R6.4, not XFree86, so it doesn't have xf86config. You won't
need it anyway, when you use a -current kernel then it should support X
on your machine as cg3 emulation and X should run without any
configuration right out of the box.
