Cannot Configure Xorg 1.13.0 after compile and install

After installing Ubuntu 12.04 LTS using ubuntu-12.04.2-alternate-amd64.iso
and compiling and installing Xorg, I am unable to configure.  My procedure
for installation is detailed below:

sudo apt-get install dh-autoreconf libudev-dev dpkg-dev libgcrypt11-dev
libgl1-mesa-dev libpciaccess-dev libxkbfile-dev libxfont-dev
libpixman-1-dev x11proto-bigreqs-dev x11proto-composite-dev
x11proto-core-dev x11proto-damage-dev x11proto-dmx-dev x11proto-dri2-dev
x11proto-fixes-dev x11proto-fonts-dev x11proto-gl-dev x11proto-input-dev
x11proto-kb-dev x11proto-print-dev x11proto-randr-dev x11proto-record-dev
x11proto-render-dev x11proto-resource-dev x11proto-scrnsaver-dev
x11proto-video-dev x11proto-xcmisc-dev x11proto-xext-dev
x11proto-xf86bigfont-dev x11proto-xf86dga-dev x11proto-xf86dri-dev
x11proto-xf86vidmode-dev x11proto-xinerama-dev xserver-xorg-dev
x11proto-xcmisc-dev xutils-dev

sudo apt-get source xserver-xorg-dev-lts-quantal

cp -r <that source directory> xserver

*Drop to single user mode*

cd xserver
sudo ./configure
sudo make
sudo make install
sudo reboot

After rebooting, I am unable to configure.

trying to X, xinit, or startx will cause the server to fail with:
     Fatal server error:
     No screens found

trying to Xorg -configure will fail with:
     Missing output drivers.  Configuration failed.
     Server terminated with error (2).  Closing log file.

I am installing this on VirtualBox 4.2.14.  The host operating system is
Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS.  Any information which will lead to a remedy would be
greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time.
