can you run any other X program (try xclock, for example) under these
very circumstances? If you get the same Xlib error, then I suppose you
were logged in as root while running make xconfig, but started the X
server under your regular userid (which is good, btw). In this case do a

  xauth merge ~<your regular username>/.Xauthority

(...hopefully not starting the same old discussion about what else you
can do and why not -- it's all in the archives ;)
