Subject: [gentoo-hardened] Xorg testing desired

On monday May 30th the PaX Team sent me a testing patch for Xorg to make
it fully pic compliant/text relocation free. 
I have been successfully using this patch for a few days now with my
hardware. We would appreciate it if we could get a little more testing
with this before passing it along to our Xorg maintainers and upstream.

I tested with.
  +3dfx -3dnow +bitmap-fonts -cjk -debug +dlloader -dmx -doc 
  -font-server +hardened -insecure-drivers -ipv6 +minimal
  +mmx -nls +opengl -pam -sdk +sse -static +truetype-fonts 
  +type1-fonts (-uclibc) +xprint +xv

You can use this command to confirm that it's free of text relocations.
scanelf -tq $(epm -q -l xorg-x11)

# scanelf comes from app-misc/pax-utils
# epm comes from app-portage/epm

Make sure it runs like normal.
Try glxgears before and after if your not using the +minimal USE flag 
and have GL support.
