[vbox-dev] VirtualBox Guest Additions X.Org bug

Hi again,

As I've mentioned in my previous report, Guest Additions fail to
install correct X driver on my guest system (Linux 2.4/Slackware 11).
The problem is install.sh script assume that X.Org 6.9 onward stores
modules in /usr/lib/xorg/modules, but it is not the case for
Slackware's X.Org 6.9.0 which still use /usr/X11/lib/modules for that
purpose. I don't know if it is a violation of any hierarchy standard
so I've slightly modified script logic - now it takes version from
Xorg -version output and expect to see modules in one of the
{/usr/lib/xorg,/usr/X11/lib} whenever number is. I'm attaching the
patch to the letter, hope it would be useful.
