 In fact, the files already does that.
 If it does not do that, then it is because the thinks that you 
 have existing headers that are good enough.
 Can you please provide a little info from your Solaris system?
 After you do a "bmake clean", the do a "bmake configure" (which may fail) 
 and provide:
 grep -i fixes work/
 For example, on one of my BSD systems with no native X I have:
 H_XFIXESPROTO=  /home/reed/pkg/include/X11/extensions/xfixesproto.h
 H_XFIXESWIRE=   /home/reed/pkg/include/X11/extensions/xfixeswire.h
 IS_BUILTIN.fixesproto=  no
 USE_BUILTIN.fixesproto= no
