'spossible, but I usually wind up tweaking it by hand 'cuz it needs it AFAICT.

However, to s-c-d's credit, I have checked the output xorg.conf after
running it, and the file seems to be set up right, or at least not any
more wrong than I would have, and it still doesn't work.

I've had to tweak xorg.conf by hand every time to get it right.  Not
sure why....
