Cross-compiling a static Xfbdev from XFree86 4.3

SOLVED: I had to use CDEBUGFLAGS="-static" when building the server component


I'm trying to compile a statically linked Xfbdev from Xfree86 4.3. I have been following the instructions here and have successfully built an executable file. However, I need to statically link it for anything to work (the binary runs but complains about the wrong version of libc, so doesn't stay running for long).
here is my host.def:
#define KDriveXServer              YES
#define KdriveServerExtraDefines -DITSY -DMAXSCREENS=2
#define TinyXServer                YES
#define CrossCompiling             YES
#define ItsyCompilerBug            YES
#undef BuildRandR
#define BuildRandR                 YES
#define BuildXInputLib             YES
#define ProjectRoot                /x11arm
#define Freetype2Dir               $(TOP)/extras/freetype2
#define Freetype2LibDir            $(TOP)/exports/lib
#define BuildXTrueType             YES
#define BuildScreenSaverExt        YES
#define BuildScreenSaverLibrary    YES
#define SharedLibXss               YES
#define ServerXdmcpDefines
#define XfbdevServer               YES
#define XipaqServer                YES
#undef DoLoadableServer
#define DoLoadableServer       NO
#define ForceNormalLib           YES
I added the DoLoadableServer option hoping it would build a static binary, but I still got a dynamic one.

Any ideas on how to get this working correctly?
