Ok, that explains thing, since the regmach64.h stuff has a #ifdef FBDEV server
around it. Could you please try the patch i sent to this list ? It should
provide a solution for this. It is quite hacky yet, but i would like to know if
it works. Basicaly i put a #elif defined (__sparc__) after the #ifdef
FBDEV_server which contains a copy of the regwbe function. So it should also
get included on the non fbdev sparc built.

Ok, ...

I will write also to the Xfree list to see whåt is the common opinion on this
stuff, and see to it that it is handled in a nice way. BTW, did you try the
3.9.x servers on sparc ?
