From http://xcb.freedesktop.org/wiki/DevelopersGuide:

The modules you need to checkout, build, and install for XCB are, in order:
 * from X.org CVS:
   * proto/X11

To get this from CVS, see
http://xorg.freedesktop.org/wiki/ModularDevelopersGuide, which suggests:
$ cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs at anoncvs.freedesktop.org:/cvs/xorg login
CVS password: <hit return>
$ cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs at anoncvs.freedesktop.org:/cvs/xorg co proto/X11

Alternatively, to use a stable tarball of xproto, try
for the version shipped with the 7.0 roll-up release, or
for the latest release version of xproto itself.
