  So go ahead and do "emerge --sync" and see what you get. Its also preferable to do "emerge linux-sources" and compile the kernel which is offered.

Now "emerge -uDN system" but note that a lot of things have changed. You may well get remnants of KDE-3.5 floating around in there (such as kde-base/arts-3.5 which now no longer exists, so remove arts from the /etc/make.conf file). After a bit of hunting I found a Gentoo bug report which mentioned using dev-utils/lafilefixer. Run "lafilefixer --justfixit" to get rid of any ebuild errors which refer to the no longer used .la libtool files. At this point you're also supposed to do a "revdep-rebuild", but this failed for me.

  Now you should be ready to emerge the modular xorg-x11. Actually I did all this in the wrong order, so it took several iterations. To do this it is recommende to remove the earlier version, but this is not completely necessary. So do "emerge xorg-server". Now when you try to use it you will get into a huge problem with the old drivers. This is because the ABI (Application Binding Interface) has completely changed. You will have to re-emerge all the installed drivers and driver sets, but there is no simple package ebuild to do that. Fortunately you can use a trick which also does a one-shot emerge so that the drivers are not added to portage world dependency tree:
