I did a Macports install of xorg-server-devel on 10.5 and xrandr doesn't report back anything unless I have multiple monitors, then just the single monitor full size... but with a single monitor, xrandr doesn't say anything... nothing at all, just type it in and back to the prompt.  I didn't want to put in a bug report since the alpha is a 10.6 build I was thinking maybe it wasn't supposed to be working yet.  this alpha build is working decently on 10.6 though.

It should be working on 10.4 through 10.6.  The multi-monitor case should actually be working "less" because we only are presenting the two legacy modes (rootless and fullscreen).

What is xrandr's exit code?  ('echo $?' after running it)

I think xrandr should always print something... even if RandR isn't available, it'll print:

~  $ xrandr
Xlib:  extension "RANDR" missing on display ":4.0".
RandR extension missing
