I've made a patch that allows to enable building Security extension 
(-DXCSECURITY switch in Xorg) by passing --enable-xcsecurity switch to 
configure. This extension is required for nvidia binary driver to work. 
Patched debrix is available from my archive: qbast at go2.pl--2004 
http://arch.hypair.net/archives  as debrix--js--0.1--patch-5 . 

I've also second branch (debrix--dynamic) that builds all modules as 
external .so libs (no builtins). It works without problems (if you don't 
count resolving dependencies between modules by hand) with binary nvidia 
driver, scitech driver and other Xorg modules like cfb*, mfb and so on. You 
only need to relink them (e.g. ld -shared nvidia_drv.o -o libnvidia.so). Main 
advantage is that you don't need to add all those symbols to xf86sym.c (and 
pray that next version of driver won't need another symbol).
