Thanks for your responses guys.  I'm now having the problem below.  Do I
really need xorg 1.3 to build (and presumably use) the driver?  Both my
autoconf and git skills are somewhat lacking, but it looks like I need
either a xf86Modes.h in the driver source tree, or the newer X server.
However, when I downloaded the driver source, it didn't pull in an
xf86Modes.h.  Am I doing something totally wrong here?  Is there a
(straightforward) way to just build with 1.2.0?

$ ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr --with-xserver-source=../xorg-server-1.2.0/
checking for xf86Modes.h... no
configure: error: Must have X server >= 1.3 source tree for mode setting
code. Please specify --with-xserver-source
