This is actually what xreg is really good at handling.

For example, to run the X test suite test for XCopyArea on your running
X server running at depth 16 from the project root /tmp/XorgTEST, simply

xreg -projroot /tmp/XorgTEST -d 16 -nostart -xorg -xtest -test XCopyArea

or if you want to just run the drawing tests, which are in chapter 6 of
the test suite, then run:

xreg -projroot /tmp/XorgTEST -d 16 -nostart -xorg -xtest -chapter CH06
