you are right that it is completely useless to run xresprobe at build
time, because xorg is re-configured at run time again anyway.

however, this is what the xorg packages currently do when they are
installed, so, having not yet looked into that, if there is a smarter
way to disable it than just blacklisting the package, then i'll happily
do that.
