Thanks, I wish I'd caught those define statements earlier...
I've successfully compiled X, XFCE, Firefox, RealVNC, XScreensaver and
FreeGLUT along with all their dependencies. Right now, I consider that
to be a bit more luck than capability as most things actually compiled

Oh, seeing things installed into /lib64 and panicing. I wanted to move
on and see if I could get the system stable. Now I consider it to have
