Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 120374
Xorg X11 no longer uses xfree86.cf, it uses xorg.cf

While investigating why my recent addition of the "voodoo" driver
on AMD64 does not build, I discovered that my patch that patches
xfree86.cf is applying but having no effect. I spotted xorg.cf
out of the corner of my eye, and discovered that they just switched
to using xorg.cf instead of xfree86.cf this week as part of the
While that is a sane change, it means that we need to update a
lot of patches and other fixes now.
This is a Fedora Core release blocker.
All patches in CVS use xorg.cf now, even if they're not being
applied, so this shouldn't be a problem. The spec file moves
xfree86.cf out of the way prior to patches being applied, so
this should prevent things from slipping by also.
