About XFree86 4.4:
* It hasn't been released yet, so it's indeed quite a stunt for
Gentoo to have it already ;)
* It's true that there likely won't be official Debian packages of
it for a while (4.3 isn't even in sid yet...)
* That doesn't matter much in practice though, as the hardware is
supported by my and other unofficial packages
About Altivec, the packages where it really makes a difference tend to
be built with support for it if available.
