./configure; make; on a machine that has python.

"make" will use python to generate .c and .h files from the XCB protocol
description. Those .c and .h files are cross-platform, and can be copied
as-is to your target.

src/*.c, src/*.h (after running make).

No; you will probably have to modify configure (or write your own
Makefile by hand). I'm afraid I don't know anything about the auto*
tools; maybe someone else can help.
