XF68 problem

This evening I decided to take the plunge and try XF68-fbdev on my
machine. I have a PowerCenter 150 (Platinum video) running a mish-mosh of
LinuxPPC which no longer can really be associated with a complete release.
The kernel is 2.1.130 at the moment. 

I'm getting a seg fault when I try to run the X server. Here's what strace
has to say about it:

execve("/usr/X11/bin/XF68", ["/usr/X11/bin/XF68"], [/* 33 vars */]) = 0
brk(0)                                  = 0x1aa02cc
open("/etc/ld.so.preload", O_RDONLY)    = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
--- SIGSEGV (Segmentation fault) ---
+++ killed by SIGSEGV +++

I indeed don't have an /etc/ld.so.preload, and I'm not entireley sure what
that file should contain. I'm also not clear on why the absence of that
file is causing the X server to seg fault....

Any ideas?
