I think it looks for the xorg version itself. Ati driver has prebuilt modules
depending on X Window system version, but not server version. Anyway, X Window
System veersion reported is wrong. My solution was to downgrade xorg-x11-server-Xorg
package to the initial F7T2 version: xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.2.0-6.fc7
Now the Xorg.0.log file says this:

X Window System Version 7.2.0
Release Date: 24 December 2006
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0, Release 7.2
Build Operating System: Fedora Core 7 Red Hat, Inc.
Current Operating System: Linux localhost 2.6.20-1.3017.fc7 #1 SMP Thu Mar 22 23:00:37 EDT 2007 x86_64
Build Date: 20 February 2007
Build ID: xorg-x11-server 1.2.0-6.fc7 

ATI driver is working ok now.
