This set of patches is representative of the maintenance planned for all
252 xorg modules. It originated  from fixing build related bugs here and
there. Patterns emerged and opportunities for enhancements were pursued.
The domain of the changes are the modules configuration and packaging,
no C code change and no impact on object code of any kind.

Some of the work involved completing enhancements designed by others,
but unfinished due to the volume. Other work originates from new ideas
or simply fixing inconsistencies and warnings. I have documented the
changes in the wiki http://wiki.x.org/wiki/NewModuleGuidelines. This
will help understanding the patches.
