I followed the directions from the XFree86 web site & those listed
in the INSTALL and README files (or whatever they were called).  It
took some time & space to compile, but there were no problems in the
compile process or installing the files at a preferred location.

The only problem that i had was to set up the environment to pull
the cvs source.
