RANDR: syntax error near unexpected token

Hi Henry, 
THanks for the reply. 
I don't see this problem when I use FC5 to build Xorg7. But only see on SuSE10. How come Xorg7 build process is behaving differently (or finding libdrm package) on FC5 but not on SuSE10. Does SuSE10 requires manual installation of libdrm into modular directory before proceeding with xorg-server package?

Hi Chand. It looks like you need the libdrm-devel package, which will then 
create the libdrm.pc file.
