Darn!

I forgot to write down one instruction for the (pathetic) work around
I posted. Before running "make install" again (after the error) you
need to delete the contents of /usr/X11R6/man/cat3/ where the Xdbe*
man pages get installed.

Also there's a mistake in the last paragraph of the bug report:
/usr/XF4/xc/doc/man/dbe
should be 
/usr/XF4/xc/doc/man/Xext/dbe

Once you get it installed, run "man XdbeGetBackBufferAttibutes" and
you'll see a screwed up subject line on this entry. This is the man
page that is installed just before the one that causes the error
(XdbeGetVisualInfo).
