The fix below that is only enabled for i386, arm32, and amiga. I've added
the following lines inside MipsArchitecture block (and committed):
#define PexDynamicModule NO
#define XieDynamicModule NO
These should fix it if you 'make clean' in XIE and 'make Makefiles; make
Xpmax' in the top-level Xserver directory. The modules should be linked
into the server, not built as .so's.
Yes, everybody hates Imakefiles I think. Although I hate autoconf/automake
