It's been broken for quite a while, I had just completely forgotten
about it as I compiled X using BASH when I first booted the system. The
problem itself isn't the variable but rather the fact that configure
treats the entire thing like anything after --prefix is an argument.
Looking at the Makefile after configure shows 'prefix = /usr/X11
--sysconfdir=/etc --mandir=/usr/X11/share/man --localstatedir=/var', and 
that's where the problem lies.
Using the values themselves - rather than $XORG_CONFIG - with configure
works perfectly. Therefore, if the variable is set properly and the
commands work by normal use, then the only thing I can think of is that,
for some reason, ZSH isn't properly passing the value to configure. The
fact that it works on BASH strengthens this theory; './configure $(echo
$XORG_CONFIG)' also works.
