Of course we need modern X11libs for that. But yes, server expects only
Xau, Xdmcp, crypto for ssl (modern X links to stuff like udev, pixman
and others, but this can be avoided).
When building and running X I got only one thing: for 3D, games and so
on I need a dedicated machine with videoboard vendor's drivers (no
matter opensource it or proprietary). For anything else, I would use
vesa. So there is a question: will musl support this configs? Or I will
need patchelf and 'libc6-legacy' for them?
