I've updated the build instructions on
Quickstart for those that do not use jhbuild:
export ACLOCAL="aclocal -I $PREFIX/share/aclocal"
git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/xorg/util/modular/ util/modular
echo "util/macros" > built.modules
./util/modular/build.sh --clone -p -f built.modules -r `tail -n 1 built.modules` $PREFIX
Re-run the last command until a build succeeds.
