Where is xkeyboard-config in the X tree

I'm trying to get an build of X from source to run independently from
my system X. I've been using the instructions on the wiki but I keep
running into problems. I discovered I had to manually build mesa but
I'm still failing to run:

(EE) intel(0): First SDVOB output reported failure to sync
(EE) intel(0): Failed to set tiling on front buffer: rejected by kernel
(EE) intel(0): First SDVOB output reported failure to sync
The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports:
> Error:            Can't find file "evdev" for keycodes include
>                   Exiting
>                   Abandoning keycodes file "default"
Errors from xkbcomp are not fatal to the X server
(EE) Error compiling keymap (server-0)
(EE) XKB: Couldn't compile keymap
XKB: Failed to compile keymap
Keyboard initialization failed. This could be a missing or incorrect
setup of xkeyboard-config.

Fatal server error:
Failed to activate core devices.

Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support
         at http://wiki.x.org
 for help.
Please also check the log file at
"/home/alex/src/xorg/install/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional

(EE) intel(0): First SDVOB output reported failure to sync

giving up.
xinit:  No such file or directory (errno 2):  unable to connect to X server
xinit:  No such process (errno 3):  Server error.
xauth:  error in locking authority file /home/alex/.Xauthority

Searching the source tree I can't find an xkeyboard-config module.
Which module is it part of?
