I'm just trying to build xorg 7.3 also. And I cannot find a suitable
pixman that satisfies xorg-server's configure. This looks for a
'pixman-1', whereas my pixmans (0.9.5 and 0.9.6) install as plain
'pixman'. Somehow this situation is suboptimal: an official xorg release
depends on something that's just not to be found anywhere.

So, if anyone could point me to a suitable pixman, I'd be really grateful.
