You'll get bashed by Xorg developers if you do this. Without XCB, we can at 
least pretend that we are just lazy.

This contains a known idle-spin bug when compiled against XCB: 
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=415541 - and note that this 
is not a locking bug that can be worked around with -DNDEBUG.

Also you have libXi-1.0.2. While this will work with -DNDEBUG, I don't 
recommend this version.
