FreeBSD 5.3. Some questions about kernel and X


Installed FreeBSD 5.3 on P266/64Mb ram/8Gb HDD/8Mb ATI RAGE

trying to configure X

*************************
$ X -configure

...
...
XfEnableIO: failed to open /dev/io
*************************


trying to set different options to /dev/io with chmod didn't help

then, I need to recompile kernel with some options.

*************************
$ make depend

pxe.c:40:17: net.h: No such file or directory pxe.c:41:19: netif.h: No such file or directory

(same with nfsv2.h, iodesc.h, bootp.h)

mkdep: compile failed *** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/src/sys/boot/i386/libi386 *** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/src/sys/boot/i386/ *** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/src/sys/boot *** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/src/sys/ *** Error code 1
*************************

Trying to compile kernel with GENERIC config gives the same errors.



Googling didn't help
What's wrong?
