You're not doing anything wrong. It looks like maintainer never build 
the test packages. All Makefile under test directory need to have -lva 
-lX11 to compile.

In addition, nobody seems to care to manually change the version that is 
never correctly updated (1.0.10-> 0.32.0). This has been so for month 
and I already reported the error.
