It actually gets quartz/xpr/libxpr.a to be rebuilt which gets built
into Xquartz (not libXquartz)

Wait no! I think that's a bad idea. I was thinking about doing that
yesterday and undid the changes!
I was going to flatten things out but I realized that this break
between darwin/quartz/xpr is *GOOD* because it will let us change from
xpr / miest/rootless to kdrive by simply replacing xpr and allows
someone to resurrect XDarwin at a later point by making a 'darwin/
Xdarwin' directory and implementing the same interface.
There is a dependency problem here, and I can fix it in another way
that is a bit more "correct":
darwin/*.c should go into darwin/libdarwin.a, darwin/quartz/*.[mc]
should go into darwin/quartz/libXquartz.a, and xpr should be where
Xquartz gets built linking to those two.
As an end goal (seeing kdrive based X server down the road), we can
probably make xpr into a dylib which gets dlopen'd by our app bundle
based on defaults (choosing between the xpr one, the kdrive one, a
resurrected cr, etc).
