Can't think of any.

X can be compiled to use the XF86Config file from different locations,
and, infact this file location can differ when you do startx or when X
is started via xdm.

You can find the full path of XF86Config used in the file

You might also want to find all XF86Config files on your system by the 
command: locate XF86Config
