I have checked, and the only FTBFSs of which I am aware were caused by
the unavailability of the latest version of libpaper1 on various build

As far as I know, once that is satisfied, XFree86 4.2.1-6 should build
on all architectures in unstable.

I do plan to release a 4.2.1-7, to fix some important runtime problems
that were introduced in 4.2.1-6.  I plan for that to be my last release
in the 4.2.1 series.
