Basically all four X11R6.4 packages should give simillar results.
As far as I know Sergey's package was built on a binary mounted
disk (according to the info in this diffs file).  I do not know about
Arlindo's X11R6.4.
The X11R6.4 in my distribution was built from the most recent
X11R6.4 distribution from X.ORG.  Also I built it on a 
text mounted disk.  I prefer to avoid binary mounts.

The Widgets also in my distributions were built from the most recent
sources versions.

I hope this answer your questions.
