You must use the git repository at freedesktop.org [0]. The last and 
updated bits of TinyX implementation (which now is called kdrive) is 
there inside xserver tree. Use the modular developers guide [1] to see 
how to compile and install this correctly (tip: set "--enable-kdrive" to 
autoconf). You'll probably want to see the kdrive [2] wiki page also 
(disclaimer: not so updated).
