           Summary: x11-server/xorg-server: drop SUID option
           Product: Ports & Packages
           Version: Latest
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any

When using KMS drivers it's possible to drop root priveleges[1] but this is
only implemented for Linux and OpenBSD. Devuan added libseat support[2], so one
can use seatd like wlroots and Weston. seatd is supported on FreeBSD but
libseat in xorg-server is interleaved with Linux-specific code thus not usable
on FreeBSD without extra work.
