/etc/X11/xorg.conf is sort of hardcoded, override it with the -config
option. (see man Xorg). otherwise look at the top-level configure.ac
file to change it.
make sure your Section "files" has a ModulePath entry to /tmp/modular/
remove all other module paths that point to other locations such as /
your driver is probably in /tmp/modular/lib/xorg/modules/drivers, if
you're talking about the X driver.

you need to rebuild. just moving won't work.
