The problem only comes installing the XFree86 meta package, when
it's installed, x11-links hands it automatically. You have to rebuild
the x11-links package to add the headers/lib to its buildlink.
I was trying to do your way some time ago, but Soren Jacobsen didn't like
it. I had a package called XFree86-dirs with the same functionality.
But really I prefer this method too.
