I want unblundle $(VBOX_PATH_X11_XFREE_4_3)/, if not required have a
rule in kmk that doesn't try to build it, would be nice.

We have two rules in guidelines of fedora packaging that I'm trying to
follow, no bundle sources and no static libs, all should be compile
against system sources and dynamically.
I send to you a backup file that isn't applied on package because fails
to compile with liblzf . I'd make possible compile against liblzf of the
system . 
Others bundle sources like boost, libxml2, libpng and zlib already use
system sources.
The others src/libs are kStuff and xpcom18a4, which I don't know what to
do .

At last other question is how I build RuntimeR3 dynamically ?
# RuntimeR3 - Static Runtime for Ring-3 executables.
RuntimeR3_TEMPLATE      = VBoxR3Static
