OK, I finally got a couple of solid hours to figure out what's going
on. Seems that the code I got from git assumes that all of the xorg
header files are in the src dir - but they don't get pulled in. Copying
stuff over just didn't work. I went ahead fixed all of that to where it
would pull in the header files from the correct dirs for debian lenny.

Let me know if this is useful. I can either post it on the wiki or
submit a bug report.
nouveau_drv.so built OK; the man page build crashed with
