Hi there,

I am trying to install xfree86 and I am following the instructions in a
recent (last month) version of BLFS.  Based on LFS 3.3.  Basically I
have unpacked the 3 sources and made the 4.2.1 patch I then type the
following command:
Make World 2&> | tee xfree-compile.log

And get an error.  I enclose the log as an attachment.

Any ideas?

I hope you checked the configuration parameters in ./config/cf
to see if you need to pass BOOTSTRAPCFLAGS.
