Whatever set of libraries are needed by the clients you're going to run.

If that's only clients that are already ported to libxcb, then it may be
enough.   Otherwise you'ld need libxcb, plus libX11, libXau, libXdmcp,
x11proto, and whatever set of extensions your clients require the proto
& library modules for.

There is no single list that is both minimal and covers what every setup needs.
