Patch would be good since this is part of all the X's. For modular,
I'd prefer if we clean out cruft like Imake and xorg-cf-files. They
are of no use once you're out of the monolithic build. But that's
probably for another day (roughly half the apps are useless, too).

I'm just hammering through Xorg-7.1 again, and I'm finding that all
the autotools niggles are gone. The modular build is actually pretty
decent. Almost all the hacky sed's can be dropped.
