Thanks, Jeremy. Now I do recall that being there. However, I believe
Bruce pulled it out when all the notes about compiling the kernel DRI
stuff was changed. To tell you the truth, I cannot say for sure if the
kernel version for the host needs to be the same as for the target when
building Xorg/XFree.

I'm CC'ing the BLFS-dev list to get a bit more exposure to the question.
