Xvfb from source

To be clear, these are the rpm's I have access to:

The command I'm attempting to use is:
Xvfb -co /p/home/ggeorge/tmp/usr/share/X11/rgb -fp
/p/home/ggeorge/tmp/usr/share/X11/fonts/100dpi/ -fn lucidasans-bold-18
-fc olcursor +extension RANDR :99&

The error I get is:
error opening security policy file /usr/lib64/xserver/SecurityPolicy
Xlib:  extension "RANDR" missing on display ":99.0".
