When I build it, it seems to insist on looking for X header files 
in /usr/include (instead of the server source tree).  As a result, it can't 
seem to find xf86Crtc.h:

make[3]: Entering directory 
/bin/sh ../../libtool --tag=CC   --mode=compile

Anyone have a proper fix for this?  I'm sure I could just throw the relevant 
header file someplace where it will find it, but ... rather get it fixed 
the Right Way. ;)
