sure, why not - it would be better is we could get a cvs
respository tho, something thats always available...

Yes, mca and I have hacked one up, there is 1 outstanding issue
with it, about the xkbdevel drivers, now i have never used/needed
these drivers, so i just hack the xc/progams/Makefile to rm the 
install of the xkbdevel stuff and works great.  I'll attach it :)

Just a few quick pointers about it - it totally redefines all the
arch specific compile time attributes, so read it carefully 1st and
change what needs to be changed for your curcumstances. You dont
need to follow the X11 hint, this host def gives you a fully threaded
i*86 optimised X server, along with X's inbuilt freetype-lib, you just
need to add your own ttf fonts, and your ready to go.  This has been
written/tested on X410 - if you want to use X403, then i would stongly
suggest using the X11 hint, it is a very good, in depth hint.
