Found it. The root cause is that I was unable to open /dev/dri/card0. In
the end, every system management problem in existence can be diagnosed with
strace... I added myself to the "video" group and everything is happy now.
I have not delved further, but I am guessing that the problem is that I
don't build SELinux into my kernels. I've never had anything break as the
result of leaving out SELinux before... Worth noting, I bet I'm not the
only one who will run into this one.
Thanks to everybody who took a look at this,
