Would you be so kind as to report this upstream?  I would suggest
mailing xpert@xfree86.org.  Please mention that you're not subscribed,

(Oh, yeah: do not expect a speedy reply, everyone's a little burnt out
after the release of 4.1.)

  make World
  # go for lunch
  # go for coffee
  sudo make install
  sudo make install.man

How is this difficult?
