xf86cfg runs XFree86 -configure to generate a settings file, or

when i run xf86cfg i get a flash of what looks like a slick

Module ABI versions:
	XFree86 ANSI C Emulation: 0.1
Xfree86 Video Driver: 0.3
XFree86 XInput driver : 0.1
XFree86 Server Extension : 0.1
XFree86 Font Renderer : 0.2
Loader running on linux
Illegal instruction
