I have a similar problem.

I did have XFCE running quite happily on an old G3 (Blue&White) PowerMac, 
but the recent X server upgrades have borked that up completely. Ive 
followed the upgrade guides without getting anywhere. Im looking for a X 
config file too.

Doesn't seem to be much traffic on this list though...
