Nope, I guess it must be an old option kicking around in a spec file.
I'll do more investigation with my feet rather than speculating!

For whatever reason, my build of xorg goes into the hw/xfree86/vnc
folder and cannot fine an auth.c file to compile (as specified in Perhaps the options you specify do not include this folder
in it's compilation but I'll need to look more closely.... don't really
have time just now hense why I'm speculating more than giving real
results... sorry for being a time waster ;)
