The fixes from PR port-i386/15404 have been integrated in the meantime.

1.) There are no branches in our X11 sources.

2.) The default XFree86 version for *all* ports is still 3.3.6. So unless
    Frank van der Linden switches the port-i386 to use XFree86 4.2.0 by
    default there is absolutely no problem for the upcoming NetBSD 1.6
    release because 3.3.6 is stable.

The interesting question is if we want to switch the i386 port to
XFree86 4.2.0 for the 1.6 release. My sugestion is to make 4.2.0 the
default after the 1.6 branch has been created. If there are no
showstoppers after a month we pull that change up to the 1.6 branch.
