Crud... I am having compile problems. ./configure bomb with the following 


checking for XORG... configure: error: Package requirements (xorg-server 
xproto xvmc fontsproto ) were not met:

Package xorg-server was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `xorg-server.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'xorg-server' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables XORG_CFLAGS
and XORG_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.


The problem seems fairly obvious, I need the xorg-server source. But what is 
the (xproto xvmc fontsproto) stuff. Do I need to download it separately? 
Will I also need to download drm and mesa?

Any other pearls of wisdom you can share.
