If you want to build X, you might want to get the most recent
version. 4.0.2 is old and had a few bugs which were fixed in 4.0.3.
In any case, XFree86-4.1.0 has been available since a long time now.
I've been using 4.1.0 since August with no problems. In fact, 4.1.0
does a few things better. Building this release is no different than
building any previous 4.x.x .

IIRC, a newer release is/was planned for November/December?
