Not running behind every development version is a feature. Even the
stable releases of many programs are bad enough...
I don't know about enlightenment. Ask the maintainer for dbmail, he
might or might not have a reason. Keep in mind that many of us use this
software on our server, so we are somewhat reluctant to randomly update
Modular Xorg is work in progress. Don't know which "newer" versions you
want to see as the supported parts are almost all up-to-date.

I find only xerces-c, where it is disabled by default. The rest use
whatever the packages does by default. I don't know what you base your
opinion on, it certainly isn't because some of the platforms lack thread
support (in which case pth would be used automatically).
