You can try xkbcomp in CVS, there was a change to try /usr/bin/xkbcomp
instead of /usr/lib/X11/xkb/xkbcomp. Alternately symlink the former to
the latter. Also make sure /var/lib/xkb exists and
/usr/lib/X11/xkb/compiled exists (there are other ways to do this, but
this is the one I use).
You'll want libX11 from CVS too because it fixes VT switching.

Should be fine as long as you change the prefix in everything. For some
packages you'll also need to pass additional parameters like
--with-xkb-path; check individual configures.

Not sure why this happens, but it's the same here.

Right. This needs to be fixed. Got a patch?

Same as the last one. Needs a --with-symlink-target=Foo added to
configure.ac or so.
