You might have better luck with xfree86 because it isn't modular which I imagine would complicate building. cvs checkouts are always a crapshoot as the code could likely be broken, especially if Darwin isn't a supported platform (I don't know if it is or not). Have you considered bootstrapping NetBSDs pkgsrc (Darwin/OSX is a supported platform)? I've used pkgsrc and it worked well. It will save you a lot of headaches. Mind you, I didn't build something like X but I did build KDE4.

I commend you for trying to undertake this project but I think without some expert knowledge of compiling X, you're going to run into trouble.
