As I understand it, the xfree86 package uses (some derivative of) dbs,
in which the package maintainer has to order the patches by hand,
instead of declaring explicit dependencies (much like sysvinit and
others do, and like the patch-ordering facility in make-kpkg).

If the above is correct, I'd see that as a step backwards.
