Following up my own post... The problem with savage_drv.o was due to a
compile problem; that in turn was due to a cvs update problem at some
point that created a savage_driver.c with conflict notices. How that
happened, I don't know, but deleting that file and redoing the CVS let
things build properly.
But my base question remains: what is the "right" way to build x11?
