Heck, even with "--disable-config-hal" and "--enable-config-udev" the server doesn't like
it... I have no idea between 1.12 to 1.13.2 to refuse using udev... 

Is it possible the 1.12 stack use a internal udev library for handling basic 
input devices (keyboard/mouse) ?

This file contains any messages produced by compilers while
running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes a mistake.

It was created by xorg-server configure 1.13.2, which was
generated by GNU Autoconf 2.69.  Invocation command line was

  $ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --disable-ipv6 --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --enable-config-udev --enable-maintainer-mode --disable-config-hal
