build problem with --enable-install-libxf86config

Hi List,

on my gentoo box I have a server build which fails (using the live xorg
ebuilds). The ebuild invokes:

./configure (lots) --enable-install-libxf86config (lots more)

My (separate) dev builds didn't fail. So I applied the above command
line to my dev tree and, viola, the exact same error occurred:

make[4]: Entering directory `/usr/src/xorg/tree/xserver/hw/xfree86/parser'
make[4]: *** No rule to make target `/os/xprintf.c', needed by
`libxf86config_a-xprintf.o'.  Stop.

Dropping the option in question fixes the build. So the question arises
whether libxf86config should be dropped or fixed, and similar for the
gentoo/ebuild side.
