I don't believe so. Oh, let me warn you: This X patch is really ugly.
At present it references a bunch of BSD code, which is actually Linux

You should be able to find it at (along with the remainder of the XFree86

I am extracting the XFree86 patches from the source rpm as well, they will
The following two contain most of the arm stuff, although there may be a

cross compiler environment this week.]
