Whether or not they're "X server related", at the moment the only MD
x set we have is xserver.tgz.

Speaking as a release engineer, we need to ensure that the sets are
sanely split along MACHINE_ARCH shareable / machine independant /
machine dependant lines.

What I'd like to see in the X sets is:

	xbase		MACHINE_ARCH shareable (atari is exception)

	xcomp		MACHINE_ARCH shareable

	xcontrib	MACHINE_ARCH shareable

	xfont		machine independant, although the XFree86 4.x
			version is XXX MB versus YYY MB of 3.x

	xmisc		MACHINE_ARCH shareable

	xserver		MACHINE specific X server, possibly containing all of
			the other MACHINE specific stuff (unless we
			make another set for it)
