Do you remember what was the issue (build or run time)? I've
everything beside xkeyboard-config compiled (XML::Parser perl module
missing, but I think that should be easy to fix). You can check [1] for dependencies of Xorg meta-package (actually it is
meta-package that uses 5 other meta-packages).

As for xorg-server 1.6.5 itself (name of individual part provided by it compiles with LDFLAGS+="-z muldefs", otherwise linker warns
about multiple definitions and fails.
