Thank you, will try it

Well. I just wanted to try to build some minimal xorg and play with the
config settings. I already compiled a lot of monolith xorg's and apart
from building problems (some combinations of DRI/DRM yes/no didn't work)
I never encountered serious bugs!
Of course if I encounter bugs, I will rebuild with "normal" debug info
before submitting a bug report. But until this day, xorg isn't buggy
enough for me to build default with debug info. See this as a compliment!
