I think it's better you run the diff in respect to
the original XFree86 4.3.0 version.

It's a hack and I wouldn't consider it a long-term
solution. Anyway it permits us to ship the X server
without the Xlibs and their dependencies.

There should be also a similar hack to handle the
clipboard in a way that it doesn't loose the select-
ion. I've seen a similar solution in recent versions
of cygwin-xfree.
