[uClibc] Trouble with buildroot and X11

First post to the list, and yes I did search but to no avail. Before
I start complaining let me start by saying thanks for such a great
tool. It is very impressive and very handy. If I could only figure
My company has been using a hand crafted root file system image with
busybox 0.63 for a couple of years. I've just come on board and one
of my tasks is to update the root file system image and clean up their
build process for assembling a root file system.
Buildroot does 95% of my entire task flawlessly but I cannot for the
life of me figure out how to make X11 compile. I am running on a 686
architecture for both my target and development system. I am not
resource constrained, our product is a full 3gHz single board system.
We boot from a flash disk, load the kernel and root file system into
ram and run from ram for the most part with a few pieces of the system
running off the flash disk.
When I try to compile X11 I get the following error message:
-o scanpci -Os -fsigned-char -L../../../../../exports/lib
scanpci.o -L../os-support -lxf86_os -L../scanpci -lscanpci
../os-support/libxf86_os.a(Pci.o)(.text+0x17): In function `pciInit':
Pci.c: undefined reference to `ix86PciInit'
I'm sure I am not providing enough information but I'm not sure where
the problem might be.
Could someone send me an example of a working busybox .config file
that will compile X11?
I tried compiling in the tinyX server and that completed the build
process (and I made sure I have a kernel with fbdev support). But I
cannot for the life of me figure out how to run the fbdev binary.
Does it require a config file? Is it configured with command line
options? I have an Intel 845GV graphics chipset which uses the 'Intel
i810' device driver. How would I call / configure the fbdev
executable to set up a simple 800x600 screen with 16 bit color and
keyboard / mouse support?
Sorry for all the questions but I have really hammered on this for a
couple of days and am completely stuck. Any suggestions welcome as
well as any links to a "rtfm" for fbdev. I found some fbdev man pages
but they were next to useless. I need either the command line syntax
or config file syntax.
