git clone -o util/git:// util/modular
./util/modular/ --clone -f built.modules /opt/xorg

This clones all modules and installs them into the /opt/xorg prefix. If one
module fails, you can resume at that module with the -r flag.
./util/modular/ --clone -f built.modules -r `tail -n 1 built.modules` /opt/xorg
