Subject: X sets should be architecute dependent but machine independent

As I am now building NetBSD on lots of different platforms, it comes
clear that we should approach building the X sets (especially the X
server set) as having no machine-dependent parts and only architecure
dependent parts.

That means that for little-endian mips, we build pmax Xservers as
well as well the hpcmips and arc ones.  For m68k, we build the mac68k,
sun3, x86, next68k, etc.

This means that the includes for X servers need to not be in <machine>
so that they will be present on all platforms.  <either <m68k/...>
or a bus (<dev/tc/...>) directory).


[I willing to do this for mips and powerpc since I have those.]
