X 4.0.2 module problem

Hi all.  I'm having some problems getting X 4.0.2 (running on up-to-date
sid) to load its font support modules.

The modules (basically the drivers that allow it to use a given font
format like Type1 or TrueType) live in /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/fonts.
There are a bunch of other modules living in /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/*

The appropriate section from XF86Config-4 is:
Section "Module"
        Load  "type1"
        Load  "speedo"
        Load  "freetype"
        Load  "GLcore"
        Load  "dbe"
        Load  "dri"
        Load  "extmod"
        Load  "glx"
        Load  "pex5"
        Load  "record"
        Load  "xie"

ls /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/fonts  gives
libbitmap.a  libfreetype.a  libspeedo.a  libtype1.a  libxtt.a

So, clearly the modules exist.  However, this gets logged on server

(WW) Warning, couldn't open module Type1
(EE) Failed to load module "Type1" (module does not exist, 0)
(WW) Warning, couldn't open module Speedo
(EE) Failed to load module "Speedo" (module does not exist, 0)
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/fonts/libfreetype.a

Note from the last line (where libfreetype is successfully loaded) that
it's definitely looking in the right place.  However, it is not loading
the type1 or speedo modules, which renders the type1 and speedo fonts
unaccessable.  Has anybody run in to this problem, and if so, were you
able to fix it?
