Problem compiling from CVS

I'm trying to compile xorg on a rather dated system. What was
originally installed was either Redhat 8 or 9 (uname -a = Linux
pallit.lhi.is 2.4.18-14 #1 Wed Sep 4 12:13:11 EDT 2002 i686 athlon
i386 GNU/Linux). Can't even remember which. Anyway, now I want to
update x11. I'm trying to compile and install xorg from cvs. Had a
devil of a time with dependencies but I think I've managed to sort
most of that out by now. At least build.sh runs fine for quite a
while. But then it exits with the following:
Making all in src
make: Entering directory `/tmp/src/lib/X11/src'
cd util; make
make: Entering directory `/tmp/src/lib/X11/src/util'
if gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I../../src -I../../include/X11 -

then mv -f ".deps/makekeys-makekeys.Tpo" ".deps/makekeys-
makekeys.Po"; else rm -f ".deps/makekeys-makekeys.Tpo"; exit 1; fi
gcc -g -O2 -o makekeys makekeys-makekeys.o -ldl
make: Leaving directory `/tmp/src/lib/X11/src/util'

make: *** [ks_tables.h] Error 136
make: Leaving directory `/tmp/src/lib/X11/src'
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
I've been looking all over to try to figure out what the problem
might be but I can't find anything. I have however noticed on google
that several others have had problems with ks_tables.h but not the
same errors as I'm getting. Anyone have any good suggestions?
