Comment (by randy at linuxfromscratch.org):

 It is now more crucial than ever that XFree is kept in the book.
 Reason 4 below is why I say this.

 1. There is a brand new release out. It shows the package is still

 2. The existing instructions work, and don't require any Editor

 3. It is a credible package, that works, and there is still a
 user base.

 4. As soon as Xorg goes to 7.1, we'll drop Xorg6.9 from the book.
 XFree would then be the choice for users who don't wish to go
 through the modular build hassle.
