No, there are no paths given in xorg.conf

There is NO libIntelXvMC.so in /tmp/modular/lib after building. There is
a libI810XvMC.so.1.0.0 and a libXvMC.so.1.0.0 and a libXvMCW.so.1.0.0
But no libIntel...!?
The driver is found as /tmp/modular/lib/xorg/modjules/drivers/intel_drv.so.
Is your reference to libIntelXvMC just a mental slip and you did mean
Or have I somehow *still* failed to compile this properly?
