the C code corresponding to the X protocol is generated from XML files in 
xcb-proto, and they are copied in libxcb/src

the other files C files that are not generated are in libxcb/src after 
gettingg it from git (the archives already contains the C files generated 
by xcb-proo, afaik), and only them. For example, see :
