You're compiling the upstream source and thus asking for trouble. :)
Even once you've managed to build it, you're likely to mess up your
XFree86 installation and possibly even more of your system when you make
install. It might be better for you and others in the same situation if
someone built these packages for woody instead. I'd do it, if it wasn't
for my constant lack of time... anyone?

Another possibility would be upgrading to testing and xserver-xfree86
4.3.0 from above.
