  That's the problem.  I've just taken a look at my old system, from last 
July, and it too only has libXau.a !  Worked for kde-3.4.1 :-(

  So, I think you need 6.9, which means a full reinstall of X.

  The build process looks "interesting" - I'm interested in trying it, 
and cutting out everything I don't want, but I expect a lot of pain (and 
it _really_ needs a full desktop build afterwards, to find out what is 
missing).  At the moment, I've got more than enough other things to play
