Default xorg-server expertise

I'm trying to build xorg-server from git, in order to bisect some bad
behavior.


It appears the tarball releases and what's in git aren't the same,
though. Right out of the gate, I get:


configure.ac:42: error: must install xorg-macros 1.2 or later before
running autoconf/autogen

configure.ac:42: the top level
autom4te: /usr/bin/m4 failed with exit status: 1
==> ERROR: Build Failed.
Aborting...

Is there any straightforward way to easily build packages from
bisect-identified revisions so that I can properly test?

You will need xorg-util-macros installed to build from git. The tarballs
contain pregenerated configure and Makefile.in files, so you don't need
xorg-util-macros in that case.
