Wary: upgrading Xorg video drivers

I have downloaded many recent video drivers, to explore upgrading some of them in Wary. The thing is though, Wary has Xorg 7.3+, with xorg-server 1.4.2, and some of the most recent video drivers might not work with such an old version of Xorg.

util-macros 1.1.6
# ./configure --prefix=/usr/X11R7 --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var

xf86-video-rdc 0.0.9
# ./configure --prefix=/usr/X11R7 --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --build=i486-pc-linux-gnu

xf86-video-nv 2.1.18
# ./configure --prefix=/usr/X11R7 --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --build=i486-pc-linux-gnu

xf86-video-ati 6.13.1
needs '--disable-exa' to compile...
# ./configure --prefix=/usr/X11R7 --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --build=i486-pc-linux-gnu --with-xserver-source=/mnt/sdc3/downloads/input069/0-xorg-video/xorg-server-1.4.2-patched_lenny_pciids_mar2010 --disable-kms --disable-exa

xf86-video-geode 2.11.8
# ./configure --prefix=/usr/X11R7 --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --build=i486-pc-linux-gnu

xf86-video-mach64 6.8.1
note, this was taken out of ati driver pkg.
# ./configure --prefix=/usr/X11R7 --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --build=i486-pc-linux-gnu --disable-exa

xf86-video-r128 6.8.1
note, this was taken out of ati driver pkg.
# ./configure --prefix=/usr/X11R7 --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --build=i486-pc-linux-gnu

So, when I release the next Wary, try these drivers on Nvidia and ATI video hardware.
