[Xquartz-dev] x11-exec

This duplicate icon was actually an error on my end.  org.x.X11 was  
mapping to /usr/X11/bak/X11.app on my system.

Anyways, I started moving this "stuff" over to xinit.  Right now, it  
is mostly working.  launchd's startup envokes startx to start the  
server and dock behavior is as expected.  xinit does not yet have the  
necessary code to check defaults for things like noauth tcp.   
Additionally, using X11.app to start the server (via X11.app -query  
<ip> or by disabling launchd support) falls back on the current  
server_main() in server_main.c.

We need to move over this extra support from server_main.c into  
xinit.c within __APPLE__ #ifdefs, then just tighten up server_main()  
to exec startx.


here's how to compile/install xinit:

git-clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/xorg/app/xinit
cd xinit
export CFLAGS="-Wall -O2 -arch i386 -arch ppc -pipe"
./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr/X11 --mandir=/usr/X11/man --with- 
make install
