Hmm I seem to lost my files I must have did a make clean in the
imagemagick port since I do have it installed. Well did,  my ImageMagick
just compiled fine though the tests in a TTY. Which is where I do most of
my compiling anyways instead of inside a terminal in X.
I m on 7.0 if that matters as well but I did see the test for X11 go by on
my screen. maybe that is your issue maybe.

the whole Su and su - is not related to this it seems considering I can su
to my root account and it works.

I'll try compiling ImageMagick on X to see if an error occurs.
