What a surprise. :-(

On my Suns I use MIT X (X11R4).  Depending on what you want from X (eg,
you're not likely to be doing 3D gaming on a Voyager!), that might be a
workable option for you.  I'll be happy to share what I have with
anyone interested - indeed, most (all, I think) of it is up for
anonymous FTP right now, just not well documented.
