There are instructions at:

Thanks!  Feedback is very welcome, too.

They aren't part of the monolithic build.  I think xtest can be checked
out from the "xtest" module of xorg cvs instead of xc.  I've never used
it myself, though.  rendercheck is in xapps CVS
(:pserver:anoncvs at pdx.freedesktop:/cvs/xapps co rendercheck).  It's
pretty new and lacks documentation, but it might be doable to check its
output using scripts anyway, though.

That legend does look much nicer than our interface.  I was speaking
more to the administrator's interface, though, which I've been confused
by several times (sherriff/edit differentiation, broken logins,
mozilla-related defaults, I can't remember what else).
