FWIW, here I have all of these installed. I have no idea which ones are
required, but installed them is cheap, so probably worth testing:
libXScrnSaver-devel libXau-devel libXcomposite-devel libXcursor-devel libXdamage-devel libXext-devel libXfixes-devel libXft-devel libXi-devel libXinerama-devel libXpm-devel libXrandr-devel libXrender-devel libXt-devel libXv-devel libXtst-devel
