Ahh not that bad then :)

Works for me without --disable-xorg, but I guess it will take longer to 
build. I also have a patch that does something to fbcmap stuff (I forget 
the specifics) that may be triggered when not using the --disable-xorg 
option, so there could be a problem both with and without the option :)

I reckon that the configure system should be fixed to either:
  1. Not install the two headers when running the make install of an xgl 
build... or
  2. Define the sdkdir for xgl builds and put them in the right place.

I'm happy to patch, but don't know which is correct. David/someone can 
you offer any idea?
