Looks like the xserver is looking in the wrong spot for the drivers.
The default for xorg-server is ${libdir}/xorg/modules. The drivers
would be in the drivers and input subdirectories. If your drivers are
somewhere else (maybe ${libdir}/X11/modules), then you should
recompile xorg-server with the --with-module-dir= setting pointing to
this location.
