Does Xorg need the kernel's DRM?

Do I have to enable DRM (in the kernel) in order to build and use Xorg?  I 
am asking this question, because when I enable DRM and install the kernel I 
get some headers in /usr/include/drm.  Then, libdrm (part of Xorg) tries to 
replace these headers with its own ones and I wonder which version of the 
headers I should keep -- the kernel's version or libdrm's version.
