Ah, Christian, you're alive again.

Actually, 4.0.3 doesn't even build on m68k.  My build crashed after 26
hours with linking errors in libXfont.a, of all things.  At first glance
it's a real puzzler for me.

Can you look at the build log and offer any advice?  Please also note that
I had to revert one of your patches, but it was to the xf86loader code, and
I don't see how it could possibly affect libXfont static linkage.

My guess is that upstream did something to break it, probably adding an

#if defined(arch1) || defined(arch2) || ...

Where they enumerate every architecture in the world except m68k.  :-P

The build log is at:
