Does not compile on my 4x box... but on my 5x box... there have been
absolutely no differnces between the two in any way. The only
difference is Xorg includes a few bug fixes for some chipsets not in
XFree86 4.3. The only problem has been the slowness of getting XFree86
4.4 into the ports.

It will not affect gnome or any other X using program other than
having to run pkgdb -uF
