after some massive revdep-rebuilds (libxcb-xlib versus libxcb) I managed
to compile xorg-server. It works now, but a few problems remain.
1) the synaptics driver doesn't build anymore, I was already using a
9999 version from Hanno Boeck's overlay which worked prior to the MPX
merge and all the XINPUT changes.
I already contacted Hanno and asked him about the problem and also the
maintainer of the original synaptics driver.
2) xf86-video-vesa-1.3.0 doesn't compile. That's not really a problem
because it's only a fallback driver in case I can't get the intel to
work. Going to try the source from GIT.
Everything else works and both X and mesa are pretty stable. EXA
performance is acceptable, but could be better. Seems like we have to
wait for batchbuffers until this changes :-)
