Right compiled again, and still get the same error. The
-nonow patch went in (1 hunk), the other 2 already there. Kevin
Day's Mesa-Stop_Asking went in. All appropriate seds, and bodges
and it built through, but falls over on Xorg -configure 

The url above says

dlloader will not work when LD_BIND_NOW is set, or when the
modules are linked with '-z now' as in gentoo-hardened.  this is
unavoidable until we abandon LoadSubModule for link-time
dependencies.  you'll get an error message about LD_BIND_NOW

Workaround: fix your scripts to clear LD_BIND_NOW before starting X 
Workaround (maybe): export LD_BIND_NOT=1 before starting X.

Sure enough, it complains that LD_BIND_NOW is set. Using 

export LD_BIND_NOW="" kills that error, but not the problem
export LD_BIND_NOT=1 does nothing.

Is there any workaround for this before someone writes a -nonow
patch for Xorg-6.9.0 or Xorg-7.0.0?
