remember, i said i was new at this "building X" stuff, so
bear with me.  although it sort of says it at the top of the
Xserver page, and more explicitly at the top of the
XserverInstallGuide page, somehow i completely missed the fact
that "Xserver" is the new name for what used to be called TinyX
or kdrive.  (i'm i'm wrong, please correct me, again.) to me,
"Xserver" seems like an awfully generic name for a specific
server type, especially one that has had other names in the past. 
am i way off base somehow?

anyway, i have a real question here:  i'm following the procedure
for building kdrive from the XserverInstallGuide page, and i'm
coming up short when building xdmcp -- the failure relates to
xproto being missing.  (specifically, no pkgconfig data for
xproto.)  where should this come from?

thanks for pointers.   consider me a beta tester.
