OK, we'll go make that change in CVS.  If it kills any compilers, but is
fixable, we'll fix it ;-)

Hmmm.  What version of XFree are you using?  Xv is only in 4.0, but there
should be a check in configure.in for it.  It might not work.  If you
could send that chunk of config.log to me, I can try to see why the test
isn't working.  In the meantime, you can simply comment that whole test
(lines 277-283) out and put in a HAVE_LIBXV=no instead.
