I'm running xorg-x11-6.8 on XP1000 with no problems without needing to
explicitly specify -fPIC

Oh, really?  I wasn't aware of that.  Could you point to the pages?

This isn't related to -fPIC.  I include -mieee in CFLAGS on alpha
which would probably fix that problem for you.  (I'd like it if
everybody would include -mieee in CFLAGS on alpha... there's almost no
code out there that's written to work with the non-ieee behavior, so
it's just asking for trouble to build without it)

Good to hear it's working...  I don't have an ATI adapter on alpha to
test at the moment.  My daily workstation has an Elsa GLoria.
