I am not sure if I want to build a full Xorg. What I want is just to 
install Unichrome drivers in xorg and I don't know if that requires a 
whole new installation of xorg or if I can install over my existing 
version. Anyway, now when I did install over my existing xorg my modules 
were removed, as I said earlier. Can I do this and then replace the 
module-dir with my old one (the one I am using now), would this be OK if 
all I want is to install drivers to xorg?
