 Do you have in ${XROOT}/lib64/modules ?
If not, perhaps you have it in lib ?  I'm not up to speed with
modular Xorg, at the moment I'm on 6.9 which uses host.def to
specify where things go, but perhaps pass --libdir to configure.

 As to the rest of it, if it still segfaults when it can find the
radeon driver, I suspect a compiler error (based on my experience
with ppc).  But, building the latest 4.1 gcc snapshot and using
that to rebuild the multitude of packages in modular X is not
something to lightly suggest :-(
