Got a little further having installed libgcrypt11-dev and 
--with-sha1=libgcrypt on the configure of xserver.

However xserver now fails with the following error:

xwayland-input.c: In function 'create_input_device':
xwayland-input.c:499:51: error: 'wl_input_device_interface' undeclared 
(first use in this function)

I did a pull on all the repositories and this symbol does not appear
