How do I compile and package the X Server code?

Since I have done it several times, obviously I am able to archive up the code for OpenChrome and other DDXs, but I am not able to archive the X Server code.
I tried archiving X Server using xorg/util/modular's script, but I am not able to complete the task.
I am able to compile X Server, although I do not know at this point how to install it to my preferred location (I will like to install it to /opt for testing purposes).
How do I install it to my preferred location and run the compiled version rather than the existing version?
Please note that I use Xubuntu 16.04.5 for this.
