Further investigation of the source reveals that the test is for the existance of
/etc/X11/CF86Config --- previous versions tested for /etc/XF86Config .
Unfortunately, now some of the configuation programs place the file in
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/XF86Config -- where it doesn't get noticed. Other times
the user may place it in /etc/XF86Config (which is still legal). In any of
these cases, the error message occurs, and is incorrect.
It looks like when this happens, configuring the desktop may also get lost.
