+ = Xenocara
From Xenocara.org
1. Xenocara is the name chosen for OpenBSD's version of X.
2. It's currently based on X.Org 7.2 and its dependencies.

Here's the link to the installation guide and CAPS LOCK patch: Building and Installing Xenocara

Building and Installing the new Xenocara on your Z is a process which could take up to 4 days. :shock: The automake portion alone takes 1-hour to complete. If time isn't an issue, then follow these steps.

Step 1: Update /usr/ports, and /usr/src, then build/install a new kernel/world. The details of this process can be found here: UPGRADING YOUR OPENBSD ZAURUS VIA CVS

Step 2: Create the xenocara src directory and checkout the sources via cvs.
# cd /usr/src
# mkdir xenocara
# cvs -d anoncvs@anoncvs.openbsd.org:/cvs checkout -P xenocara

Step 3: Create the xenocara object directory.
# mkdir -p /usr/xobj

Step 4: Now begin the three step build/install process.
# cd /usr/src/xenocara
# make bootstrap && make obj && make build

Xenocara is installed in /usr/X11R6. Further information can be found at the following link: Notes on building Xenocara for OpenBSD X hackers
