No, that's "normal". The virtual X server was still running from the build
stage, and the second one from the install stage just detected this fact.

Unfortunately, it is at the moment. But you can always provide your own X
server and set $DISPLAY appropriately. If make detects that an X display
number is provided in $DISPLAY and it can connect successfully to this
display, it is used and the alternative logic to provide a virtual one with
Xvfb bypassed.

If anyone's got a positive answer to this question, I'd happily 
implement it.
