Not really; X questions that don't get answered elsewhere tend to
trickly down to here.  :)

I don't know of any place.

Tricky.  I suggest bolting the earliest debian/ directory from a Debian
XFree86 source package you can find (*after* 3.3.6, though -- don't
bother with that) onto the 4.0.1 or 4.0.2 sources.

There *will* be changes you will have to make.  If you're not
experienced with Debian packaging the task may be very difficult.
