It installs everything under /opt/X11, aside from specific launchd config
files that do not conflict.  It *may* override a launchd configuration to
run xorg-server from macports, but that's a non-default setup.

(Also note that MacPorts' xorg server is the *same* XQuartz, by the same
maintainer, so if you're using it then you do not need the macosforge one.)
