I should also note that the X.Org Foundation does have the resources,
thanks to its sponsors and its hosts at Portland State, to operate a
tinderbox service on so that those
who do care about ensuring our releases build out of the box on their
platform can do so by setting up one of their machines as a tinderbox
client to build the latest development branches from git. has more information on how to set it up.
(I am admittedly deficient in doing so for the platforms I maintain, but I
 manually build from git fairly often anyways.)
