A lot of other binaries on my box needed rebuilding as they directly
referenced libxcb-xlib.so.0.  An example I have yet to rebuild:

,----[ readelf -d /usr/bin/autotrace|grep xcb-xlib ]
|  0x00000001 (NEEDED)                Shared library: [libxcb-xlib.so.0]

That may also be so for Mandriva.

OTOH, now that you mention it, going back to the current git master of
libxcb and libX11 shouldn't require rebuilding everything yet again, yes?
