I tried using the "make World && make install" route defined there,
but building X failed. The build did produce /usr/X11R6/bin/XFree86
but that complained: "cannot execute binary file". During the 
build GCC crashed a few times with internal compiler error.
I am thinking of testing the memory for errors next.

ps. If it helps I can provide a log of the build but it is 
quite large - 4.7mb uncompressed.
