Thanks.  From what is in the systemd book, I hae:

kfilemetadata  now in kf5
KIO-Extras  ???
baloo now in kf5
oxygen-icons  refer to kde4 (installed in /usr)

mesalib requires --with-egl-platforms="drm,x11,wayland"

In addition to xcb-util-cursor it also wants XKB (required version >= 0.4.1)

http://xkbcommon.org/download/libxkbcommon-0.5.0.tar.xz looks current.

./configure $XORG_CONFIG --docdir='${datadir}'/doc/$PROGRAM  make 

make check
sudo make install

There ars also several packages not mentioned in the systemd book:
