and i thought the whole thing about splitting x into modules, was to make 
stuff easier to maintain... somehow it made it harder to use though...

what would really help would if you made a everything+dependencies directory 
in addition to (or as replacement for) the everything directory right now. 
because trying to get the right versions of all the deps is a real pain, also 
the mess with mesa being required during build, while mesa itself requires 
xorg during build could thus be fixed.
and build and install should really be split into two, like the new script on 
the list does....

and then a menu-driven install ( text-based question+ answer  would be ok too) 
to deselect drivers you dont need would be awesome (or even with 
auto-fetching feature...) dream....

thank you very much!

p.s.: i manually installed older freetype,still didnt get it to compile (stops 
at other points now) and gave up :(
