Xorg (or XFree86) won't compile, problems with imake.o

I have tried first xorg then an 4.3.0-version of xfree86, both of them did not work. Here is what I did:

$ cd xc
$ make World
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `imakemdep_cpp.h', needed by `imake.o'.  Stop.

Logged in as root?

What o/s?

What kernel?

rpm or source for the X-Windows System?

Where did you get the packages?

What version of the X-Windows System are you using now?

I fixed it, it was just imake that has put it's own bin-dir first in PATH and therefore replaced touch with some shit. But thanks anyway.
