building Xorg backport

Dear All

I am running debian sarge on a powerpc, and I have
several problem related with a buggy X11 that kills some applications
once in a while, and that seldom dies abruptly.

Since it seems that the XFree86 is going to be abandoned I wanted to pass 
to Xorg. 

Is there any precompiled binary for sarge on powerpc? 
I find only x11-common which is a "common infrastructure", but contains,
as far as I understand, no server.

Instead, there is a source in the debian backport that I was trying to build 
with no success so far. 
I am not very used to the tools of the debian project to make deb packages.

This is what I did:

apt-get source xorg-x11 from backports and began to build.
I issued 
debian/rules build-server

it took some time to get to this error:

I guess that I am doing something wrong, but I cannot figure out what.  
Indeed I tried to read documentation on how to build from source in backport 
but I found nothing.

Any help is welcome
