Previous package releases of xorg-server had xorgcfg utility included. For some reason this utility is disabled by default in recent mainstream releases of xorg-server, but I found it very handy to create simple and clean xorg.conf after new installation (if running with -textmode option). Can you enable its build manually?

Additional info:
* package version: xorg-server-1.4-5
* configure option: --enable-xorgcfg
This task depends upon

If it is just a question to --enable-xorgcfg, why not do. The 'xorgcfg' is a very handy tool in post configuring xorg.conf. 'X -configure' and 'xorgconfig' are for new xorg.conf.
