I did ./ --prefix=/tmp/xorg in xserver/xorg, which gave me: error: possibly undefined macro: XTRANS_CONNECTION_FLAGS
	If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
	See the Autoconf documentation.
autoreconf: /usr/local/bin/autoconf failed with exit status: 1

then I went to install lib/xtrans sucessfully, and set ACLOCAL="aclocal -I
/tmp/xorg/share/aclocal" as comment in, redo again. 
I got:
./configure: line 18726: PKG_PROG_PKG_CONFIG: command not found
then stopped at:

./configure: line 24862: syntax error near unexpected token `XLIB,'
./configure: line 24862: `      PKG_CHECK_MODULES(XLIB, x11)'

Ideas? Yesterday I did use util/modular/, but I found some modules
were not built and installed properly. The errors are like above.
