Why are you __linking__ to /usr/X11R6.4/lib the XFree86 4.0.1 code?

rm -f xf86cfg.exe
gcc -o
xf86cfg.exe -O2 -pedantic -fno-strength-reduce -fpcc-struct-return -fvtab
le-thunks -m486 -Wall     -L../../../../../exports/lib accessx.o
config.o        card-cfg.o      help.o  interface.o     keyboard-cfg.o
cfg.o   mouse-cfg.o     options.o       screen-cfg.o    screen.o
      xf86config.o -lxkbui -lxkbfile -lxf86config -lXxf86misc
                  -lXxf86vm -lXaw -lXmu -lXt -lSM -lICE -lXext -lX11 -lXt -l
SM -
lICE              -lXpm -lXext -lX11 -lm -L/usr/X11R6.4/lib   -lipc

and why are you linking ti lipc?  We discussed it a while ago on list

vidmode.o(.text+0x2154):vidmode.c: undefined reference to
vidmode.o(.text+0x24f7):vidmode.c: undefined reference to

BTW xf86cf.exe is broken, I know that.  It is needed only to compile
XFree86.exe X-server
which is broken too because os-support contains only stubs to support
for Xwin and XNest.  What do u want to do with xf86cfg.exe, anyway?
