XFree86 4.0.1 glibc2.1

I have an x86 based PIII embedded system Single Board Computer (SBC)
which has Timesys Linux with kernel version 2.4.21 with glibc21
running. I now want to have X installed on this computer. For that I
have downloaded XFree86-4.0.1 because of compatibility reasons. I have
tried installing it, but it always stops with the following sentence:
Object format is 'ELF'. Normally, it should proceed beyond this point
and install X completely. A snapshot of the konsole output is also
appended below.

Could someone help with a solution to install X on this system? Any


bash-2.05# ./Xinstall.bin

Welcome to the XFree86 4.0.1 installer

You are strongly advised to backup your existing XFree86 installation
before proceeding. This includes the /usr/X11R6 and /etc/X11
directories. The installation process will overwrite existing files
in those directories, and this may include some configuration files
that may have been customised.

Do you wish to continue? (y/n) [n] y

Checking which OS you're running...
uname reports 'Linux' version '2.4.21-timesys-4.1-agpgart',
architecture 'i686'.
file: Using regular magic file `/usr/share/magic'
Object format is 'ELF'.
