4<para><command>( make WORLDOPTS="" World 2&gt;&amp;1 | tee xfree-compile.log
5 &amp;&amp; exit $PIPESTATUS )</command>:
6This command runs multiple makefiles to completely rebuild the system.
7<envar>WORLDOPTS</envar>="" disables the default setting to continue after
8encountering an error. <parameter>2&gt;&amp;1</parameter> redirects error messages
9to the same location as standard output. The <command>tee</command> command
10allows viewing of the output while logging the results to a file. The parentheses
11around the command runs the entire comand in a subshell and finally the
12<command>exit $PIPESTATUS</command> ensures the result of the <command>make</command>
13is returned as the result and not the result of the <command>tee</command> command.</para>

15<note><para>When rebuilding <application>XFree86</application>, a separate command that may be used if only minor
16changes are made to the sources is <command>make
17Everything</command>. This does not automatically remove generated
18files and only rebuilds those files or programs that are out
19of date.</para></note>

21<para><screen><command>ln -sf ../X11R6/bin /usr/bin/X11
22ln -sf ../X11R6/lib/{X11,libGL.so{,.1}} /usr/lib
23ln -sf ../X11R6/include/{X11,GL} /usr/include</command></screen>
24These commands are present to enable other (broken) packages to build
25against <application>XFree86</application>. We do this even though the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard
26says:
27"In general, software must not be installed or managed via the above
28symbolic links. They are intended for utilization by users only."</para>

30<para><command>make CC=/opt/gcc-2.95.3/bin/gcc -f Makefile.linux</command>: This builds the
31<application>XFree86</application> compatible kernel modules using the same compiler used to compile
32the kernel.</para>

35/lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/char/drm/</command>: Put the kernel
36module(s) where the kernel can find them. You only need to copy the driver you
37need to support your video card.</para>
