Well, basic avr32 support seems to be missing from the X server. I
don't have access to any avr32 hardware, so unless someone steps up to
fix it I think we should make BR2_PACKAGE_XSERVER_XORG_SERVER depend
on !BR2_avr32 (with a comment entry explaining it similar to the
packages needing C++/wchar/largefile support).

And then the -expanded defconfig doesn't make any sense, so it should
get removed.

I normally build avahi with ipv4ll support (on ppc) without problems,
so it seems specific to atngw100. I'll do a test build and check.
