Comment (by dj at linuxfromscratch.org):

 Replying to [ticket:2520 dj at linuxfromscratch.org]:
 > Taken directly from Alexander's comments for #2391 (Comment 8):

 > --disable-static: removes useless *.a files, please do the same with all

 OK. Good. Should be done.

 > --with-\*=/etc/\*: paths

 Fixed in 6.3 now.

 > --disable-xorgconfig, --disable-xorgcfg: don't build interactice
 configuration tools. As demonstrated on the LiveCD, one xorg.conf with a
 single adjustment (video driver) suits everybody. As a side effect, Cards
 and Options files (that contain obsolete content anyway) are removed.
 Anyway, the programs look for these files in $XORG_PREFIX/lib/X11 (see the
 source), while they are actually installed in $XORG_PREFIX/share/X11. So
 these programs don't work now anyway, and nobody noticed. Remove them.

 Not necessary.  Cards and Options are installed into $XORG_PREFIX/lib/X11
 as they should be.  --disable-xorgconfig is no longer a valid configure
 switch.  The users can decide if they need the gui util.

 Alexander, can you let us know if the others two are still valid?
