Ok, I admit, I am drinking german beer which has been imported to the US.
Somebody must have put something in there....

What the *** are you talking about? What config, aclocal, etc???
Have you checked Brandens nice website? I just did (on my Amiga):
add this to /etc/apt/sources.list (as described on the page)

# X strike force
deb http://people.debian.org/~branden/ woody/$(ARCH)/

apt-get update; apt-get upgrade

eh voila, new X. I don't claim its working yet, the usual problem:
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/fonts/libbitmap.a
(II) Module XFree86 Font Renderer: vendor="XFree86 Font Renderer"
        compiled for 4.1.0, module version = 1.0.0
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libpcidata.a
Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11.  Server aborting

So you have to use the 3.3.6 xserver-fbdev package with this.

If you really want to compile X yourself (which is the only explanation for
your mail, but why where you asking for an m68k version then?) you might
want to check the fine README in the source as well as the control file, to
find out what packages you need to satisfy the build-depends. And you might
want to read my other comments in the thread on debian-x, to prevent your
machine from compiling for a day, for nothing...
