X -configure is a virtually useless anachronism. Build an xorg.conf that only
has in it whatever sections need to be there to provide the options you need,
and let automagic do the rest. Some minimalist examples from include:
"The wise are known for their understanding, and pleasant
words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
