[crux64] Building X11R7.1

Hi Guys,

I'm currently reinstalling CRUX (due to a HDD failure), and decided to
try out Danm's v2.2 test build.

Being one for trying new stuff, I've successfully installed the latest
kernel revision and have decided to try out X11R7.1 from X.org (If I
stuff it up, nothing's lost due to being a clean install).

Anyway, I'm only getting about 90% the way through the install, with an
error on xkbcomp causing a floating point exception when rebuilding the
keyboard template files?

I've googled quite a bit and haven't come across anyone else with the
same error. That leads me to believe that it may be distro related,
rather than a bug in X (but if it's s bug, does anyone have a patch?)

So if anyone has successfully built X11R7.1 on CRUX v2.2 (AMD64), can
you please let me know how and what you did?

I'm trying to install straight from the bz2 tarballs (using that script
provided), and have read through the README several times... (I don't
have an active internet connection at home, and the firewall at work
currently blocks git:// so can't get the absolutely bleeding edge

Cheers, Darran

PS. I do realise that Dan's build of CRUX is considered a test version
and the build/project is effectively dead...
