I'm using the workaround of manually deleting the problem patch during
the build.  

The problem for gentoo that I see is that with the removal of -r1 (and
xfree being the only viable alternative is not available either), gentoo
does not have a usable desktop for those actually using it in
production, so this should be viewed as a serious issue that requires
active resolution - just leaving this issue in place until we catch up
with upstream means this is going to become a running sore for gentoo.

We (the users) need a stable, secure, and working X.
