It's a very hard job you've been attempting. I've kept away from the
xorg-7 page through pure cowardice. I've built it several times (with
the help of http://wiki.x.org/wiki/ModularDevelopersGuide, I based my
script on xorg/util/modular/build.sh) but I don't really understand it.
It's too complicated, like the nuclear power station in the bike shed
analogy http://www.unixguide.net/freebsd/faq/16.19.shtml . Maybe if we
split it up into ten pages we might start to get a grip on it. But how
do you split up a nuclear power station?
