Building XFree86 4.0

Building XFree86 4.0

Hi guys,

I wonder if anyone has seen this problem with building XFree86 4.0 from
the sources before.

When I go to make World on the source code, it starts the makedepend
phrase and does it quite well until it gets to xc/programs/xterm. There,
makedepend seems to get stuck in some way, but it is still running
according to ps ax.

I started this last night, some eight hours ago and it's still working on

Surely this is not usual is it not?

I'm on a dual Pentium Pro 166s w/ 512k caches, 256MB of memory and loads
of diskspace, using gcc-2.95.2 and glibc 2.1.3, on 2.2.14 kernel.

You only need two things to get through life: a hug and a shrug


1. Can't compile XFree86 4.0--stalls when building xterm

I'm using RedHat 6.1, 2.2.14 kernel, glibc-2.1.3, make 3.78.1.  The last thing
make prints out before it stalls is:

make[3]: Entering directory `/opt/src/redhat/SOURCES/xc/programs/xterm`
../../config/makedepend/makedepend  --   -I../.. -I../../exports/include  
-Dlinux -D__i386__ -D_POSIX_C_SOURCE=199309L -D_POSIX_SOURCE
-DOPT_WIDE_CHARS  -- button.c
charproc.c charsets.c cursor.c                data.c doublechr.c fontutils.c input.c
menu.c misc.c print.c ptydata.c                 screen.c scrollbar.c tabs.c util.c
TekPrsTbl.c Tekproc.c VTPrsTbl.c                main.c  keysym2ucs.c resize.c

I've left it on for over an hour on an AMD K6-2/300, but all disk activity stops,
so I don't think it's doing anything.  I can get the rest of the package to build
if I kill this specific process--make just keeps going, and I can even get it
to run.

Anyone else have a similar problem?
