I don't know what you are running, but in my case was:
- Download XFree-4.2 source files
- Edit Makefile to install on /usr/local/X11R6
- make world
- make install
- edit /etc/XF86config-4:
  the first time I change the driver to "ati" (it works)
  the second time I chande the driver to "radeon (it works, too)
- /usr/local/X11R6/bin/X -probeonly (fine)
- Edit /usr/gdm/gdm.conf (mainly change the path of X and add
  /usr/local/X11R6/bin before the another one).
Currently I have XFree86-4.1 (from debian package) and 4.2 installed,
the fonts used coming from XFree86-4.1 (it doesn't matter, I guess)

That's all.
