Well... I have them symlinked, and this is what I have to suffer:
Note: Moving /etc/XF86Config to /etc/X11/XF86Config.
/etc/X11/XF86Config already exists! Moving /etc/XF86Config
to /etc/X11/XF86Config.xserver-common-old instead.
/etc/X11/XF86Config.xserver-common-old already exists!
Aborting installation of xserver-common package. Please
clean up your crufty filesystem.
So now when I upgrade X, I first move /etc/XF86Config out of the way.
