Comment (by randy at linuxfromscratch.org):

 I'm now past this issue, and cannot exactly reproduce it as
 I've since updated the version of libXfont to 1.3.0 and it
 seems to work fine (I've not tested the X installation yet,
 I'm still building packages).

 I can say that it was the ft_isdigit issue exactly as
 described in the Wiki page I mentioned. Here are the
 specifics when the issue occurred:

 x86-64 building in 32bit mode
 Very current LFS-SVN
 Xorg-7.2 packages using BLFS-SVN wget file

 I updated libXfont to 1.3.0 and the issue went away.
 Let me know if you want more info. One of the reasons I
 built Xorg-7.2 instead of 7.3 was to see how it would
 build in an imaginary scenario where you used LFS-SVN
 and some minor updated BLFS packages, but stuck with
 the Xorg-7.2 instructions as they stand right now (which
 is probably close to how they will be in the 6.3 release).
