I don't know what your problems are.  But the last time I compiled X it went
without a Hurd-related glitch.  The change to libc0.3 and the new server
interfaces might have changed something about that, although I have no
concrete idea what.

Cross compiling X is insane.  I think somebody did it once a few years ago,
(and you might even find the homepage where it is documented).  But it's
still insane.
