I suppose, then, that my problem with xsltproc could be amd64-specific
(it dies with 100+ "chunk is already free" errors.

I built version 1.1.19 via pkgsrc, and then it almost worked right; at
regular intervals in the generated code, some declarations were
truncated.  When I corrected them by hand, libxcb built, and
libX11-1.1.1 seemed fine with it.  It is annoying to have to patch it
every time after the build though. ;)  I noticed that gcc complained a
lot about violations of the strict aliasing rules, so I tried
compiling it with -fno-strict-aliasing.  No go. :(
