PEX support

I need to enable PEX support un XFree, but I am really newbie in debian
package building.

In an early mail to Branden Robinson (sorry Branden), i have detailed
the steps followed.

1) apt-get source xserver-xfree86
2) cd xfree86-4.2.1/upstream/archive/
3) tar zxvf xfree86-4.2.1.tar.gz
4) cd xc/config/cf
5) edit X11.tmpl, and say YES in BuildPexExt
6) cd ../../../
7) tar zcvf xfree86-4.2.1.tar.gz xc/
8) cd ../../../
9) tar zcvf xfree86_4.2.1.orig.tar.gz xfree86-4.2.1/upstream/
10) cd xfree86-4.2.1
11) debian/rules binary

with this steps i get all deb's files, but there's no libPEX into xlibs.

Branden tells me that there is another #define named BuildPexLib, but it
seems to be evaluated since their value is (BuildPexExt &&
!BuildServersOnly). Since I have nothing to loose i have changed this
value to YES. 

The result is an error when libPEX is to be compilated. The error
(sorry, i haven't saved it) its about diferences betwen Manifest files. 

In another attempt i have enabled XIE support, but the error i get is
very similar. ¿any suggestions?
