Hello and welcome Matthieu,

Just to let you know, I am presently working on packaging XOrg 6.7.0 for
pkgsrc. I am first building under NetBSD. Then using same pkgsrc I'll make
sure it works for Linux too. I will be importing this xorg-tools and
xorg-libs packages to pkgsrc-wip first. http://pkgsrc-wip.sourceforge.net/

I helped create and help maintain the XFree86 packages for pkgsrc and
NetBSD too. For those who don't know: NetBSD maintains XFree86 in their
CVS which is the normal X11 installed with NetBSD, plus also provides it
as a third-party add-on via pkgsrc packages. The development of both is
unrelated. (In most cases, the packages aren't used by NetBSD users since
X11 is already installed; the pkgsrc maintained by NetBSD though is useful
on other operating systems, so the X can also be built and installed under
Linux and other BSDs for example using pkgsrc).

I also help package the xlibs components for pkgsrc, but temporarily gave
up do to needing a few libs which might be available now. Later, I plan to
try packaging debriX for pkgsrc (under NetBSD first) too.
