Building XFree 4.3
Hi everyone I'm tring to build Xfree 4.3 on my debian system because I need
a patch to the siliconmotion driver that has only been committed in 4.3.99.
I'm trying two separate paths, and I'm stuck in either.
First I'm trying to build a deb binary package from xfree86_4.3.0-0pre1v4
dpkg-source -x xfree86_4.3.0-0pre1v4.dsc
trying to extract sources with
make: *** No rule to make target `source.make'. Stop.
How do I extract the sources to apply the siliconmotion patch?
As an alternative path i'm trying to build XFree86-126.96.36.199 from xfree.org
sources but I'm stuck on the following error:
gcc -m32 -o glxinfo -O2 -fno-strength-reduce -fno-strict-aliasing -ansi
-pedantic -Wall -Wpointer-arith -Wstrict-prototypes
-Wredundant-decls -Wnested-externs -Wundef -L../../exports/lib
glxinfo.o -lGLU -lGL -lXext -lX11 -lpthread -lm -Wl,-rpath,/usr/X11R6/lib
/usr/bin/ld: warning: libXxf86vm.so.1, needed by ../../exports/lib/libGL.so,
not found (try using -rpath or -rpath-link)

../../exports/lib/libGL.so: undefined reference to `XF86VidModeGetModeLine'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [glxinfo] Error 1
Isn't xfree86 4.3 supposed to work "out of the box" on a debian build
Also is it really unaivoidable that every single time "make World" cleans
everything and starts building from scratch?
