Yes.  Fix the cause of the errors.

(In case you hadn't noticed, the above language technique is called "irony".
 If you don't have a sense of humour, you can read the above as "No, I 
 haven't the faintest idea how to solve the problems, and indeed you can't
 solve them because Xfree86 is in fact a hoax.  It's really an Amiga
 emulator with every third byte replaced with one taken randomly from a
 really inaccurate translation of the Koran into sanskrit.")

 (Who might also be a hoax, but probably isn't.)
