 I suppose I  picked a bad time to check it out, needed to #define
BuildXinerama NO to get through it.  Other than that, it builds exactly
as 4.4-rc2 did, and seems similar (understands the radeon 9200se in the
config, gives me the same miniscule fonts).  Good enough for me to quit
XFree86, but until they are ready for a release it probably isn't ready
for the book.
