That indeed fix the problem. Thank you for the hint (if someone is
walking on my tracks, rebuild X11 with this patch and copy the
radeon_drv.o file, and you get X working on the iBook)

I'm a bit concerned about what it will produce with an ATI Radeon on a
PowerPC machine other than thez iBook. Will that work? The patch has not
been committed to XFree86 CVS, I assume that's the reason? 

Is it reasonnable to commit that change?
