Funnily enough, XFree86 3.2 includes an X server configuration program
that needs an X server to run. It's written in a combination of C, tcl
It works by having a very generic XF86Config that will work with
almost every video card using the VGA16 server. This then uses a
couple of server extensions to configure the mouse and keyboard on the
fly before building a complete XF86Config file. Finally it starts up
the 'proper' server to test it.
There are very few systems which cannot display 640x480 in 16 colours
using the VGA16 server - I haven't found one yet that can't. I think
that a graphical configuration (and installation?) tool written with
this constraint in mind is a good idea.
