Either those "errors" were warnings or it didn't install.

Compiling source is always tricky and a hard endeavour unless you are willing to track down deps all day long. Your best bet would be to use something that takes this away from you. Now, the only thing I can think of working might be pkgsrc. You can bootstrap this for your platform and install xorg that way. This way, all the deps are handled for you and all you have to do is wait for it to build.

While that doesn't really answer your question, what kind of errors are you getting?
