Well, I borked it on purpose - it was looking for another lib, which I 
moved out of the way.   This exposed the real culprit - that it was 
trying to link against /usr/lib/ and not /usr/local/lib.

I'll try LDFLAGS

Because it would bork the Lenny install.  I went that way once; had to 
rebuild the system from the ground up.  Since then I've learned to keep 
the two versions of xorg separate in their own homes.
