This looks like another case of bug 251690. The exit status 127 is
returned by the `discover' program, which xserver-xfree86 calls to try
and auto-detect your hardware. Unfortunately, a recent upload of one of
the libraries used by discover (libcurl2, to be precise) incorrectly
broke backward compatibility, hence discover fails.

Merging this with #251690.
