Every time I try to build x11/modular-xorg-server, I get an error in
x11/xkbcomp. Any ideas?

checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
checking for XKBCOMP... gnome-config: not found
gnome-config: not found
configure: error: Package requirements (x11 xkbfile) were not met:

No package 'x11' found
No package 'xkbfile' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables XKBCOMP_CFLAGS
and XKBCOMP_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
