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

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

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

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