Yes it could. The root problem is that the module configuration is an
inconsistent state. Other modules exhibit similar inconsistencies in the
area of the INSTALL file.

I have designed and implemented a common solution for all 251 xorg
modules which is documented here:
http://wiki.x.org/wiki/NewModuleGuidelines. This solution is being
reviewed and awaiting approval. 

Even when patches are released, tinderbox will still need to remove this
file for the checkout to be successful.
