If you look at the xc/config/cf/xorg.cf file (after untarring the source
tarballs), you'll see that the release version is 6.8.1 and the release
date is 17 September 2004. You'll need to do a complete "make World"
and "make install" from the source tarballs to get the latest version
properly built and installed on your system.

The sources were put in place on fdo within 10 min of the announcement
going out and were verified to be accessible. Could you explain what
problems you had accessing the files?
