Both are listings from the source code for 'xorg-server'
done with the command ' ls xorg-server/ '

Probably two different versions ? The first one has an
autogen.sh script, etc.

The listing of the top directory itself isn't actually
showing the source code.

The files.c , etc. being the code, are inside some of the
shown directories.

There are several links to this code, probably all OK.
