The other part of the problem my be that your native libXfixes was seen 
(maybe /usr/X11R6/}/include/X11/extensions/Xfixes.h) but your native X 
installation didn't include the xfixes.pc.

One workaround is to have the generate a dummy pkg-config pc 
file for that.

What is your X11_TYPE? (I guess it is unset by you and is "native".)
