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)
