Same here, on my local system (gentoo + X11 overlay). In my git tree it
gives a good-looking -I arg.

Though I never had problems building anything. Weird. You may try using
specialized package definitions like kbproto, though that failed too on
my local.

A diff returns only obvious stuff (see below), so I'd say its a
pkg-config related issue.

James, any idea?

diff /usr/lib/pkgconfig/xproto.pc ../../build/lib/pkgconfig/xproto.pc
