x11-drivers/xf86-video-sunffb-1.2.2 fails to load without XAA support. After applying patch from upstream, driver loads and appears to work correctly. (See URL for patch)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge -1 xf86-video-sunffb
2. /etc/init.d/xdm restart
Xorg fails to start (message in Xorg.0.log about missing xaa module).
X starts and presents login screen.
Patch applied in 1.2.2-r1
I asked for testing in bug 453236 and no one ever responded. :(
I didn't realize there was already a bug reported for this (searched beforehand, didn't see anything).
I initially tried installing 1.2.1, but it fails to compile against xorg-server-1.13 (as reported in bug 453236). I keyworded 1.2.2, which builds but doesn't load, hence the patch in 1.2.2-r1. It works now.
