xfree86 compile problem

I'm trying to install XFree86-4.2.0 and am getting the following error:

gcc: ../../lib/font/fontbase.o: No such file or directory
gcc: ../../lib/font/libfontbase.a: No such file or directory
make[3]: *** [XFree86] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/root/xfree86-4.2.0/xc/programs/Xserver'
make[2]: *** [install] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/root/xfree86-4.2.0/xc/programs'
make[1]: *** [install] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/xfree86-4.2.0/xc'
make: *** [install] Error 2

does anyone know which library contains fontbase.o and libfontbase.a?

most other error messages gave some some sort of clue as to the library it
needed (ie pam_auth.h... must need the pam devel libs, etc.). I have installed
every devel lib i could think of relating to X and fonts and am now at a loss...
