xf86GetMotionEvents was disappeared when input-hotplug was merged. So  
obviously some drivers need updating to match the changes in the API.

For your case, you only need the drivers you want to use. Which is  
probably only mouse and keyboard (both will compile). Same goes for  
video card drivers of course.
