The fix is to remove lines 130, 277-279 from build.sh in xorg/util/modular. This 
was put in with XCB support on June 7 in commit 

TODO: put the same XCB build support into build-from-tarballs.sh. I suspect 
something XCB specific should be added to xorg.modules, but I don't know how 
that file is used.  (xorg/util/modular could use a README.)

However, this is going to change anyway when we split the xcb repository.
