This is because the package (in fact, all -proto packages) does not 
compile anything, just install some files. The only autogenerated file
is xcp-proto.pc (for pkgconfig) which is already created by configure. 
So in the build stage (which is represented by "make all") there's 
really nothing to do.

/usr/X11 seems to be an traditional prefix. 

You have to add $prefix/lib/pkgconfig to you $PKG_CONFIG_PATH before
running the build, so pkgconfig finds the .pc files. If you like,
you can put it into an wrapper script and define $PKG_CONFIG.
