I compiled Xorg 6.8.2 sucessfully, but when I run Xorg -configure I get the 
following output.

Dmesg doesn't hold anymore info about the error. I read around and 
understand that this has something to do with the X module loader.
Therefore I expected an issue with this flag in the host.def file.
#define MakeDllModules    YES

I have tried building with and without it, but that didn't help.

Building  Hardened Linux From Scratch - Version SVN-20060122.
Other than X, everything seems to be fine.

I'd appreciate a few suggestions.
