Hello all,
Sorry for previous mail as it was sent incomplete by mistake!!!

We are undergraduate students.We are trying to configure X server for MPX
support as a part of our undergraduate project. We are configuring the X
server but  while configuring libX11 package error as follows:

checking for XPROTO... configure: error: Package requirements (xproto >=
7.0.13) were not met:

No package 'xproto' 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 XPROTO_CFLAGS
and XPROTO_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

So we configured xproto with following command :

*sudo ./ --prefix=/opt/gfx-test/
and set the path for PKG_CONFIG_PATH  and ACLOCAL path as

*export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/opt/gfx-test/lib/pkgconfig"
export ACLOCAL = "aclocal -l /opt/gfx-test/share/aclocal/"*

We checked the directory contents in the /opt/gfx-test/lib/pkgconfig
and it is showing the file xproto.pc

we also checked the version of xproto by command :

*pkg-config --modversion xproto
so it is showing

But still the xproto error is persisting. Please help in this regard.
