Okay. My point just was to the original poster that it may not be worth
trying to troubleshoot and fix problems that have been (or may have been)
already fixed long ago.
As the next official release of Xorg will be out real soon, we may want to
use at least the beta version for it for pkgsrc testing.
xorg-server-126.96.36.1993 is the latest version for Xorg 7.2 release
I think the other tarball, 188.8.131.52, is the one with all the major changes
-- and I agree is not needed for pkgsrc now.
