I haven't built it for 7.4, but with 7.3 I had to configure the ATI 
Mach64 driver "--disable-exa", to force it to use the legacy XAA 
acceleration code, rather than EXA, which it presumably doesn't support.

Otherwise, when I attempted to run any non-trivial GTK+ 2 program, e.g. 
gtk-demo, the Xorg server crashed out with a segmentation fault, 
apparently when one of the 'exalib' routines called into the video 
driver - presumably, the driver has supplied a duff callback pointer or 
something similar.

The versions were xorg-server 1.13.2 and 1.14.1 with xf86-video-mach64 6.9.4
