I have the xorg-libraries override more of less working now. Unfortunately, 
there is still a problem of binaries trying to link against libfoo.so.x and 
the port installs libfoo.so.x.y.  Symlinks provide a workaround for this, but 
that is a manual step after the installation.  I don't think I can submit 
this override yet because of that.  I can get xorg-server to work, though 
there is an undefined symbol in the freetype module, and I can't get xorgcfg 
to build due to undefined symbols related to Xaw.  The XTT module works fine 
though (I am using xorg-server with XTT right now).  The mousewheel works 
fine for me.  

Xlibs is something else entirely.  I could build all of them, but, there is a 
threading problem in libX11 that I can't fix.  I can manually build XThrStub 
from xorg-libraries and link libX11 against it, but I still get undefined 
symbols.  Something is forcing the implicit declaration of getpwuid_r and one 
other similar symbol, and these are not defined anywhere  in DFly as far as I 
can tell. This pretty well makes xlibs useless.
