"modular" as in that every library or program that conforms X.Org
is now in its own distfile, all autoconf-ized (a la GNOME).  (I don't
know the granularity of the packages, though.)

I think we'll eventually have to switch.  And IMHO, the resulting
packages will be better than the current situation of patches for
imake files and inconsistent installations between pkgsrc-supported
