No one has ever gone through the exercise of ensuring the complex
dependencies are properly setup to force rebuilding the Xorg server
any time any related file changes.   Sometimes you just have to
manually rm hw/xfree86/Xorg and then make install.   If this annoys
you, we're happy to review proposed patches to improve it.
