Welcome to the list, Brian. And glad to hear that you've made it so far 
on your own. :) If you want some raw reference so that you might be able 
to figure out a solution, you might want to take a look at our 
Makefiles: the way we script the building of the official LFS LiveCD.

You can view them online here:

"trunk" contains the current development version of the scripts, "tags" 
contains released versions, and "branches" contains experimental 
off-shoots of trunk.

If you prefer to download the scripts locally, you can check them out 
via subversion:

svn co svn:// (will grab the whole repository)

Within each section, 'etc' contains the static configuration files that 
will appear on the final CD, and 'packages/[pkg-name]' contains build 
commands for each package.

If you have any trouble making your way through them, just ask. But if 
you dig well enough, you should find how we've got Xorg set up to work 
on various machines for our CD.
