            Bug ID: 257417
           Summary: xorg-server package: libxaa.so is missing, breaking
                    support for older video hardware
           Product: Ports & Packages
           Version: Latest
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Many People
          Priority: ---

For some reason, the libxaa.so library is missing in the xorg-server package.

This breaks some older video card drivers.
The s3 driver is an example.
It does not support the AccelMethod option, instead seems to be hard-coded to
use the XAA method.

The libxaa.so driver must have been removed from the xorg-server package some
time since 2014, as you can see in this post:

Could the libxaa.so driver please be put back into the xorg-server package?
