Is this release meant to work on netbsd-current/sparc ?  The xfree86
folks mention that it now has sun framebuffer support, but I guess
they mean sun framebuffer support iff compiled up under solaris or
some such. 

I'm seeing what looks like include file problems in
sunINit.c. (Just a path problem or more serious?)

    In file included from sunInit.c:49:
    sun.h:103: machine/fbio.h: No such file or directory
    *** Error code 1

Strangely this error didn't cause the "make build" in /usr/xsrc to be
aborted with an error.  The build continued onto the install phase.
Unfortunately my shell script saw the zero return from the build and
dutifully cleaned up the compile directory with a make clean.  Grrr.
10 hrs of ss5 compile blown away.

Can the xsrc stuff be cross-compiled via nbmake-sparc ?
