Arrgggh Wayland is not compiling again (xcb-composite)

Make of weston is not working:

~/swdevl/wayland/weston$ make > /dev/nullconfigure: error: Package 
requirements (xcb xcb-xfixes xcb-composite xcursor cairo-xcb) were not met:

No package 'xcb-composite' found

I have the .pc file:

ls /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pkgconfig
pthread-stubs.pc  xcb-composite.pc  xcb-render.pc  xcb-xfixes.pc
xau.pc            xcb.pc            xcb-shape.pc   xdmcp.pc

And that directory is on the $PKG_CONFIG_PATH

I also note that it seems to have found the xcb-fixes.pc in the same 

Any idea how to fix this?

Also it may be a dumb question, but why is weston depending on 
xcb-composite (or any of xcb at all)?
