Building Xorg 7.1 from tarballs

Just thought that I would update all of you on this. I was able to complete a build of the entire Xorg 7.1 "everything" tarball successfully. From everyone's input, I was able to adapt the installation procedure so that it would successfully install repetitively on several cleans installs. I constructed some very basic scripts, corrected the "suggested" install instructions from the Modular Developers Page & !! it works!! 8-D And I was able to do it in a single pass of progressively building the underlying tools & libs.
Thanks again for your insight and suggestions.
PS - the online docs should 'really' be updated.....

Yeah, that sounds about right. You just need to remember to move the
makedepend build up to some point before your Mesa build (yes, I know I
said imake earlier, but then I remembered that makedepend is packaged
separately). As scripted, the utils (xorg-cf-files, imake, makedepend,
gccmakedep, and lndir) are dead last in the build order.
