You need to install a contemporary version of xcb-proto.

In theory, any version of xcb-proto should work with any version of
libxcb. In practise, new versions of xcb-proto sometimes tickle bugs in
old versions of libxcb (and new versions of libxcb sometimes depend on
protocol definitions that don't exist in old versions of xcb-proto).
You're better off if you download both libxcb and xcb-proto from the
same place at the same time.

I'm afraid not. I don't even know which version of libxcb you are using.
I wouldn't want to accidentally give you the wrong set of files.
