[Buildroot] X11 and buildroot..

is there any buildroot configuration that gives me a working X11 using
the framebuffer?

I saw updates in the X11 area again for the current rc1, but I still
fail to compile anything using X11.

Currently, if I select tinyX and xserver, xfont-encodings will complain
about missing mkfontscale. If I add that to the dependencies, it still
complains since the binary is not copied to staging. Even then it seems
some shared libraries are missing that ldd fails to tell me about.

Qtopia simply exists with

 Turn on verbose messaging (-v) to ./configure to see the final report.
 If you believe this message is in error you may use the continue
 switch (-continue) to ./configure to continue.

I tried this months ago and ran from one problem into the other, with
no end in sight. I'm not particulary good with autotools, but the
regular updates seem to suggest that some people got this working?
