Thank you, Ferris
I went through the problem by unmerging all modular xorg modules that
I had allready merged once (for some time I had a config error on
xdriinfo package so there was some Xorg package allready built) and
started the merging process once again. It works now fine.
I have an issue with the keyboard not responding at all under X but I
didn't have time to investigate the problem by now.
PS : I thought my mail didn't reach the list because of a permanent
error I got while posting ...
