Everything (kernel, userland, x11, build-tools) is compiled from
Saturday morning's sources (Apr 13, 2002).

When I run the older xfree 4.1.0 I see a bunch of these:

    (**) MGA(0): Depth 24, (--) framebuffer bpp 24
    (==) MGA(0): RGB weight 888
    (WW) Warning, couldn't open module mga_hal
    (EE) MGA: Failed to load module "mga_hal" (module does not exist, 0)
    (II) MGA(0): Matrox HAL module not found - using builtin mode setup instead
    (--) MGA(0): Chipset: "mgag400"
    (--) MGA(0): Linear framebuffer at 0xE4000000
    (--) MGA(0): MMIO registers at 0xE3000000
    (--) MGA(0): Pseudo-DMA transfer window at 0xE2800000
    (--) MGA(0): BIOS at 0xE3FF0000
    (--) MGA(0): Video BIOS info block at offset 0x07A80
    (WW) MGA(0): Video BIOS info block not detected!
    (WW) MGA(0): remove MTRR e3000000 - e3004000
    (WW) MGA(0): set MTRR e4000000 - e6000000
    (WW) MGA(0): remove MTRR e2800000 - e3000000
    (--) MGA(0): VideoRAM: 32768 kByte

I wonder if this means that something isn't mapped right.
