FreeBSD:
Spent the day chopping XFree86 up into little bits. Boy, is it satisfying.

I've moved the DRI client drivers into a separate port. Hopefully soon they'll be provided by Mesa, but it'll at least make letting users upgrade to CVS DRI drivers much cleaner. Also removes a decent bit of mess from XFree86-4-Server. I'm doing a test now of XFree86-4-Server using freedesktop.org shared X libraries rather than building and linking those libraries in statically (this occurs for 4 of the servers). I've done some cleanup bits in the freedesktop.org xlibs, and I'm looking forward to rolling releases of some of them and integrating them into FreeBSD soon.
