/usr/bin/Xorg In xorg-server 1.20.0 is no longer a wrapper script.
Instead it's a binary that appears to be identical to the one at /usr/lib/Xorg .
This breaks the execution of X with root rights.

'Xorg'[1] and 'Xorg'[2] are generated in the same build meson directory. One overwrites the other

meson does not apply install_mode for executable targets so the suid is not set infact the meson.build does not even try to set it.
