Compiling is trivial, I really don't understand the problem you're 
having.  Do you really want to build all the unrelated packages Xorg 
used to include in it's monolithic monstrosity?  Why would you ever want 
to recompile libXt for example?  Aren't you more interested in the 
server itself?

What exactly are you trying to do?  Are you a distributor who's trying to 
package stuff up for users with less granularity than the upstream X.Org 
provides?  Or just someone who wants to tinker around with recent X bits 
every now and then?

I've heard a few people say they miss the "make World" approach but 
haven't seen anyone say *why* they miss it...

Oh, I just noticed your email address, maybe you're just trolling. :)
