Those directions are slightly out of date in one minor respect, namely
that they still suggest fetching packages from the "xlibs" repository
rather than the main "xorg" repository. That should still work, it just
won't get you the most up to date versions of Xproto and Xau.

You need the testing tool "check".

apt-get install check :)
Since you're running breezy, you'll need to fetch it from the "universe"
repository, so either add that repository to sources.list or fetch the
appropriate package from packages.ubuntu.com/check . In Ubuntu's
current unstable version, dapper, the package appears to be available
without needing "universe".
