I have to wonder what distro is installing X.org into /srv/xorg.  Though
/usr/X11R6 doesn't make a lot of sense with X.org 7.x, a.k.a. X11R7,
/srv/xorg doesn't even seem to be FHS-compliant.  I'd have expected
/opt/* or /usr.

Though, it looks like the right solution is for the user to specify:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/srv/xorg/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

before running configure--especially since X is installed in a seemingly
unusual location.
