Thanks for this. It's helpful for me, and likely for others as well.

Going through the builds of each module from scratch, and installing
into a clean prefix I've found a couple of problems.

1. The xserver module doesn't seem to use the GLUCOSE_CFLAGS or
   GLUCOSE_LIBS it computes.

2. Modules such as xf86-input-keyboard and xf86-input-mouse aren't
   picking up the necessary flags for the piciaccess module.

I'm quite sure the second failure is not glucose-specific. What's
happening is that libpciaccess is installing to $prefix/include while
all X-specific headers are installing to $prefix/include/xorg. The
current pkg-config check in xf86-input-mouse looks like this:


which is getting things like -I$prefix/include/xorg and
-I$prefix/include/pixman-1, but it's never getting the
-I$prefix/include that would be provided by a pkg-config check of the
"pciaccess" module.

I can get these module to build by adding "pciaccess" to the above
configure line, but I'm not sure if the correct fix isn't to have that
as a dependency within the xorg-server module, for example.

I'll be happy to contribute direct patches if someone could give me
guidance on the "right" fix.
