The X11 server "XFree86" seems not to honor keyboard options set in

The target macine is a ThinkPad 570, complete RH7.0 install (not n upgrade
from 6.2) with all updates as of 10/17; chip is a neomagic.

setting the '  XkbOptions "ctrl:swapcaps"  ' option does nothing, but
setting the same functionality with xmodmap works.

Interestingly the XF86_Mach64 server works (on another RH7.0 machine) works
just fine with the same keyboard options in the config file

You are using the wrong config file.  XF86Config-4 is the correct
file for XFree86 4.x
