Unfortunately it isn't so simple; apparently the X server version can't be
upgraded in pkgsrc due to a kernel limitation on one of the main supported

The choice is either to downgrade pixman to the 0.20 branch or to find a way
to make it work with Xorg-server 1.6.x

Do you have detailled information on the X server bug and the workaround ?
If possible, we'll port it to 0.22 and maintain it as a local patch.

All the Best,
