        Note: There was a bad value `<[ sw-bug | doc-bug | change-request |

        It was set to the default value of `sw-bug'.

After the recent expat move, I wanted to update, then either symlink or
rebuild expant-dependent packages, as I had some time to do it this

I use native-X11, and found out that after the upgrade X11 would just
stay blank.  This is also true when using no .xinitrc (thus using twm
and xterm only).  This is using the Radeon driver with an R630 chip,
which worked fine in netbsd-6 until this update, and without an
xorg.conf file.

Unfortunately it's difficult for me to diagnose exactly what's wrong as
I'm stuck in a blank screen, where killing X11 doesn't seem to be
possible (or at least returning to text mode).

I had a backup and could restore my previous X11R7 tree which works
fine, which was last updated 20120227.
