The latest xorg-x11 packages from unstable now build fine on hurd-i386.
However there are two issues:

1. At least on my box, the X server dies on startup due to the keyboard
driver not working:

(**) Generic Keyboard: Core Keyboard
(EE) PreInit failed for input device "Generic Keyboard"
(II) UnloadModule: "keyboard"
No core keyboard

Fatal server error:
failed to initialize core devices

2. The debconf setup is broken, it cannot autodetect mouse at first, and
then falls over a missing debconf entry, resulting in a zero-byte
xorg.conf (#259080).  Copying over an XF86Config-4 works, though.

The packages are at

deb http://people.debian.org/~mbanck/hurd-xorg/ ./

You can revert to xserver-xfree86 (I think you can leave the rest of
xorg around) by adding this line to sources.list:

deb http://snapshot.debian.net/archive/2005/07/04/debian unstable main
contrib non-free

and do

apt-get install xserver-xfree86 xserver-common=4.3.0.dfsg.1-8

Please test these packages and report whether they work for you.  We
will have to move to xorg ASAP as more and more package transition to
xorg Build-Depends.  The buildd has them in his sources.list already.
