I changed xf86config because it write in the USR section: a problem,
when this segment is loaded from a read-only media. Then, I've created
a link with a /etc/X11/XF86Config.

Now /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/XF86Config is a symlink with /etc/X11/XF86Config,
as in all standard Linux and cannot understand what happens. Can you
track the bug for me?
