I just built it and can report that it doesn't work for me.  The X
server loops wildly in it's configuration routines, chewing
up 100% of the CPU.

The same hang after I run "X -configure" to make a new X config file.
The new config file causes X to loop also.


    XFree86 loops using 100% of the CPU during initialization.

    (same symptoms both with and without agp compiled into a -current
     kernel.  System Asus A7V w. Matrox Millenium II AGP card.)


    XFree86 Version 4.2.0 / X Window System

    Release Date: 23 January 2002
            If the server is older than 6-12 months, or if your card is
            newer than the above date, look for a newer version before
            reporting problems.  (See http://www.XFree86.Org/)
