I guess you'll have to rebuild them all anyway, but you can reduce 
future pain by using -Wl,--as-needed in your LDFLAGS.

With this on, neither libxcb-x11.so nor its replacement will appear in 
higher-in-the-stack libraries such as Qt or Gtk+, making future upgrades 
_much_ more easier.

Here's a little howto on it : http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/qa/asneeded.xml
