Yes, they are integrated, considered as deprecated and unmaintained.

I am experimenting with Angstrom:
(xf86-input-keyboard is not needed any more)
xf86-input-tslib-0.0.6 (I guess it's deprecated in favor of evdev.)

Well, it's a bit worse: xf86-video-fbdev supports XRandR, but only on
hardware that supports hardware rotation (Zaurus doesn't).

If you specify "Rotate", it does software rotation (pretty slow) but
turns off XRandR support completely.
