I agree, it was my first candidate too.

sorry for my english...
I mean that some headers needed to compile the synaptics driver are not
included in xlibs-dev, while other headers (also needed to compile) are.
In my previous mail I included a treeview of the headers needed to
compile. As you can see there are some files packaged in xlibs-dev
(I snipped the full list) and some not.
I'd include in the deb source only the missing headers (as provided by
mainstream), but still compile against what's available in xlibs-dev.

the original tar.gz, sorry again

In the meantime is my approach ok?
