Now that I've taken time to actually check into it these properly,
xorgcfg (gui) and xorgconfig look to be fine, though I didn't build
xorgcfg, the reason for them not working has either been fixed, or it
was a local issue. The Cards and Options files are installed in
$XORG_PREFIX/lib/X11 as they are supposed to be....at least with current
instructions. Also, the --disable-xorgconfig is not a valid switch.
Though these programs are probably used infrequently, if at all anymore,
it should be up to the user whether they are installed.
lbxproxy should definitely go, however, I am still looking for data to
support proxymngr being deprecated. I can't find anything at all.
Looks like last real commit was back in June of 2006 -
