The problem comes from the existing libs in /usr/X386/lib that are
found before the new ones in the build tree. That's perhaps a bug in
ld... (-L should have the higher precedence no ?)

The solution I found is to move away /usr/X386/lib during the make. 

The new version number for libc explains why the problem don't arise
for it.


PS: I'm in the process of setting up a binary distribution of XFree86
    2.0 for -current (updated every week or so). I'll tell more when
    it's ready.
