What to do with base X11 for netbsd-9 ?

Hey folks,

I would like to get your feedback about the current state of the base X11,
as there have been lots of threads about various issues and I have lost
the overview of what works in -current and what does not.

We *really* need to branch netbsd-9 very soon now, and it is unclear (at
least to me) what should happen to the in-tree X11 version.

 - we have very obvious display bugs at first sight in xdm
 - self hosting builds on 4 GB amd64 machines are not really possible
   any more (due to LLVM runtime dependencies, which can not even be
   disabled at build time right now)
 - reports here (and on other lists) about display problems and success
   stories have no clear winner (but probably due to me losing track)

So what is you story/opinion: is base X11 usable in -current? If not,
what needs to be done or what hardware needs fixes?
