I tried your updated x*.tgz sets on my netbsd-5/amd64 system (without
deploying the base and other sets), but the X server wouldn't start.

With my existing config it failed to load several modules (cfb, cfb32,
mfb, xtrap, ...), and with a newly generated config (X -configure) it
(EE) RADEON(0): Unable to map MMIO aperture. Invalid argument (22)
(EE) RADEON(0): Memory map the MMIO region failed
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

This card (ATI Radeon HD 2400) works fine with netbsd-5's xorg and the
radeonhd driver, so I changed Driver "radeon" to Driver "radeonhd" in
the generated config that but again got:

(EE) RADEONHD(0): Failed to map MMIO.
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

I can provide the full Xorg.0.log if wanted.
