Hello folks,

I've went through this a couple of times, checking the dependancies  
and all.

Here is the config i used.

./configure $XORG_CONFIG --with-module-dir=$XORG_PREFIX/lib/X11/ 
modules --with-xkb-output=/var/lib/xkb --enable-install-setuid -- 
disable-glx --disable-dri --disable-xprint

It cranked along with no issues.

the make ran a long time and ended like this.

/usr/local/lib/ undefined reference to `ft_isdigit'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[4]: *** [Xorg] Error 1
make[4]: Leaving directory `/sources/xc/xorg-server-1.2.0/hw/xfree86'
make[3]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/sources/xc/xorg-server-1.2.0/hw/xfree86'
make[2]: *** [all] Error 2

make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/sources/xc/xorg-server-1.2.0/hw'

not good i guess, but where do i go from here?

Thanks in advance
