That's really weird - libXfont isn't getting built. Do you have
BuildXfontLib set to NO anywhere? It's actually quite difficult to
bypass building this.

Aha, unless you build with make -k, in which libXfont failed to link,
but it kept stumbling on until it linked Xorg. It's probably the exact
same problem, and this is why I hate the monolithic tree, and -k.
