X11 server on alpha -- update

Just to keep any potentially interested parties in the loop, I've been
trying to build xorg-server-1.7.0 for the past few days.  Lots of
updates required to get the build environment to the point where the
package would build, and most of the packages I needed were not available
in the experimental repository (not even in source form): had to get them
from upstream.

Has anyone had any success with 1.7.x on Alpha?  I'll be able to try my
build in another day or so.   An earlier attempt to build the version in
the git repository ( succeeded, but would not run due to various
undefined symbols in some of the modules:

(II) LoadModule: "int10"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/libint10.so
dlopen: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/libint10.so: undefined symbol: _alpha_inb
(EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/libint10.so
(II) UnloadModule: "int10"
(EE) Failed to load module "int10" (loader failed, 7)

Other module failures I can reasonably attribute to the modules being out
of date with respect to the server, but the int10 module was built and
installed as part of the server code, so that particular failure made me
blink a bit :-).
