 Nah, it's too sweet, bad for my teeth :-|

 After leaving the box running around in circles to burn cpu cycles, I
can now see that an earlier script fault confused me - I'd been building
freetype2 and fontconfig, but I'd not put the relevant lines into the
host.def file.  I knew that from trying to build gimp-2, but dismissed
it as unimportant.  What I've now established is that I can build the
X.org CVS checkout from 29th February, but only with it's included
freetype2 and fontconfig.  The big shock is the versions of those -
freetype-2.1.4 and fontconfig-1.0.1.  Looks like I've got to backtrack a
bit more to see which version is giving me the grief.
