LBX? or faster remote X?

I don't see lbxproxy listed in the X.org 7.4 release. But it is in 7.3.
What is its status?
I found docs online about LBX, but most are very old.
xdpyinfo doesn't show any LBX extension for me (but I read online that
recent X servers include it by default).
Before I attempt to rebuild Xorg with LBX, please let me know if this is
worth my time.
In my case, I am trying to view hundred page PDFs over a 980 to 1361
KB/second connection over a 802.11 wireless network. It is way too slow.
I guess a real alternative instead of remote X is to use network file
system and actually run the X client on my local X server.
