Thank you Det, that fixed it.

Well, that's the packaging part. You (and I) are getting this during build().

The dmx (Distributed Multihead X), like you apparently know, is meant for multiple displays, and therefore more rarely built/fixed when broken. You can remove the " --enable-dmx" in ./configure (disabled by default):

 msg2 "Starting ./configure..."
 ./configure --prefix=/usr \
    --enable-ipv6 \
    --enable-dri \
-    --enable-dmx \
    --enable-xvfb \

Make sure you start with a clean "src/" directory (e.g. makepkg -C, --cleanbuild:

You're right, I didn't know you needed it all. Here it is.

../../dix/.libs/libdix.a(pixmap.o): In Function 'PixmapStartDirtyTracking':
pixmap.c:(.text+0x368): undefined reference to 'RRTransformCompute'
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
Makefile:751: recipe for target 'Xdmx' failed

I removed the Xdmx git package since I don't use DMX from the PKBUILD and it still gives me this error.

That's not the full error.

When I try to compile this, I get this error.

recipe for target 'Xdmx' failed

it prefer set libexec to /usr/lib/xorg instead of /usr/bin.
