If XF86Config is missing from /etc/X11 redhat-config-xfree86 will not generate a
new config file, and same thing happens if the XF86Config is ruined. Running

no other tool to generate a new XF86Config file since xf86config was removed

This is a bug report for RedHat Linux Beta (Phoebe), but I couldn't find an
