I'm trying to build X.Org from git (7.2 modular) however I'm having trouble 
with auto* (I'm sure you're all shocked :) -

This is on a FreeBSD 6.2 install (fresh install)..

I used the git script from http://wiki.x.org/wiki/ModularDevelopersGuide
I had to create symlinks in utils/modular for auto* and libtool, ie..
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  28 Feb 13 08:24 util/modular/autoheader -> /usr/local/bin/autoheader259
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  25 Feb 13 08:24 util/modular/automake -> /usr/local/bin/automake19
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  28 Feb 13 08:22 util/modular/autoreconf -> /usr/local/bin/autoreconf259

Building lib module component libXau...

      See the Autoconf documentation.

***** autogen failed on lib/libXau

The AC_LIBTOOL_WIN32_DLL thing happens quite often.

Has anyone got it to build successfully? If so, any hints? :)
