Building Modular: Floating point exception when running makekeys

I'm trying to build from CVS on Ubuntu Dapper Drake to test the video BIOS
problem affecting dualhead.  I have followed the instructions on building from
CVS using the build script at the developers' Wiki.

Unfortunately, the build is terminating with the following error text:

> gcc  -g -O2   -o makekeys  makekeys-makekeys.o  -ldl

> make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/ash/xorg-cvs/src/lib/X11/src/util'

> ../src/util/makekeys < /home/ash/xorg-cvs/modular/include/X11/keysymdef.h >

> /bin/sh: line 1:  9139 Floating point exception../src/util/makekeys
</home/ash/xorg-cvs/modular/include/X11/keysymdef.h >ks_tables_h

> make[1]: *** [ks_tables.h] Error 136

> make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/ash/xorg-cvs/src/lib/X11/src'

> make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

I believe I've satisfied all of the dependencies from the Ubuntu repos, and my
currently installed versions are as follows:

Package: gcc    State: installed        Version: 4:4.0.3-1

Package: libc6  State: installed        Version: 2.3.6-0ubuntu20

Package: g++    State: installed        Version: 4:4.0.3-1

Package: pkg-config     State: installed        Version: 0.20-1

Package: expat  State: installed        Version: 1.95.8-3

Package: libttf2        State: installed        Version:

Package: fontconfig     State: installed        Version: 2.3.2-1.1ubuntu12

Package: libpng12-0     State: installed        Version: 1.2.8rel-5

Package: libdrm2        State: installed        Version: 2.0-0ubuntu1

Package: zlib1g State: installed        Version: 1:1.2.3-6ubuntu4

I've Googled and can't find anything that looks pertinent to this situation. 
Can anybody help with determining what is causing makekeys to fail (I'm
assuming an unmet dependency, but apparently I've satisfied all of them).

Thanks in advance.
