I didn't redirect the output, so the build regularly asked for my 
password and this can't be the problem. I also have the savage driver in 
the correct location, /opt/x11/lib is in, and /opt/x11/bin is 
the first in my $PATH variable.

I'm sending the Xorg.0.log file, tell me if anything else could be useful.
I did "upgrade" from, but it was in /usr/X11R6 and I have 
ranamed this directory so I don't believe anything from it is in the way.

And to the point about VT switching - I've built cvs version from 7.Sep, 
so the patch in libX11 must be there already, and yet it doesn't work 
for me.
Neither is the xkb switching.
