I am new to this list, so I apologize, if I am dealing with a very old issue 
or I don't know where to look in archives etc.

I installed succesfully linux from the scratch version 3.3. Then, I started 
building and installing XFree86 according to the hint from Sergey Ostrovsky. 
The make World process went OK, not so the make install one. I got the 
following install protocol:

make -f xmakefile install
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/lfs-packages-3.3/xc'
installing in ./include...
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/lfs-packages-3.3/xc/include'

 -DFUNCPROTO=15 -DNARROWPROTO      -c -o Clock.o Clock.c
In file included from Clock.c:50:
ClockP.h:92: field `otm' has incomplete type
make[3]: *** [Clock.o] Error 1

make[1]: *** [install] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/lfs-packages-3.3/xc'

Can someone help me with this ? How can "make World" be successfull and then 
the install process run into an "incomplete" type of Clock.c50 ? I have no 
idea how and where to continue. Any hints ?
Thanks in advance,
