problems compiling xorg on slackware 10

I'm trying to build xorg 6.8 from CVS. I'm using kernel that seems to work fine. I've no X server installed at the moment. I've used gcc 3.4.0 for the compilation.
When I "make World" I get this:

make[3]: Entering directory `/root/xc/lib/Xext'
rm -f ImUtil.h
ln -s ../../lib/X11/ImUtil.h ImUtil.h
make[3]: Leaving directory `/root/xc/lib/Xext'
including in lib/Xt...
make[3]: Entering directory `/root/xc/lib/Xt'
rm -f StringDefs.c StringDefs.h Shell.h
../../config/util/makestrs < util/string.list > StringDefs.c
make[3]: *** [Shell.h] Error 139
make[3]: Leaving directory `/root/xc/lib/Xt'
make[2]: *** [includes] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/root/xc/lib'
make[1]: *** [includes] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/xc'
make: *** [World] Error 2

Could someone help me? I've no freetype2 libraries and fontconfig installed.
And I got this error also if I do not change anything in host.def
If anyone has an idea... PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!!
