XFree86 4.1.0 can be found at the XFree86 ftp server, and at mirrors of this server. Information about obtaining and installing binary distributions of this release can be found in the Installation Document. Information about obtaining the release in source form is given below.
The source for version 4.1.0 is split into three tarballs:
X410src-3.tgz. The first contains everything except the
fonts and general X11 documentation. It is sufficient for building
XFree86 if you already have a set of fonts. The second contains the
fonts and the source for the general X11 documentation. The third
contains the general X11 documentation in hardcopy format.

be applied to a clean 4.0.2 source tree, working from the directory

gzip -d < 4.0.2-4.1.0.diff1.gz | patch -p0 -E gzip -d < 4.0.2-4.1.0.diff2.gz | patch -p0 -E gzip -d < 4.0.2-4.1.0.diff3.gz | patch -p0 -E gzip -d < 4.0.2-4.1.0.diff4.gz | patch -p0 -E
rm -f xc/programs/xieperf/images/image.012 rm -fr xc/fonts/bdf/latin2 rm -fr xc/fonts/bdf/100dpi rm -fr xc/fonts/bdf/75dpi
gzip -d < 4.1.0.tgz | tar vxf -
Patches might also be available relative to 4.0.3. If so, the instructions for applying them are the same, except that you should start with a clean 4.0.3 source tree.
The contrib part of the distribution was folded into the main source tree a while ago, so a separate contrib tarball is not required.
