xlibs was used as a test for using autoconf/automake for various Xorg X11 
"library" components. (I participated with this.)

Some of the xlibs files have not been updated for a long time.

Modular Xorg is it. Some of it is exact copies of xlibs. Some was redone.
Some have different distfile names (like renderext versus renderproto). 
And some have different versioning (dropping down to smaller number).

It is still all release candidates for Xorg -- nothing official released 

As for xlibs, it was not official either, but some big projects (like 
Gnome) used many components of it.
