Dunno, but I only had to do:

1. Download Xxserv.tgz and Xmod.tgz 
   from ftp://ftp.xfree86.org/pub/XFree86/4.2.0/binaries
2. Untar over top of xserver-xfree86's files and fix X symlink.
3. Put xserver-xfree86 on hold.

It took all of 10 minutes from a standing start, less time than many
winers seem to spend on their flames.

Xdm doesn't work, but that's the only breakage I've run into.
