 I've never built a 1.8 server, but with both 1.7.6 and 1.9.3
xorg-server.pc is the last thing installed.  Do you have all of the
following ?  (you didn't say where you are installing, so your prefix
might be different)

/usr/lib/X11/modules/extensions e.g. libglx.so

 If you have none of these, probably you didn't install.
If you have only *some* of these, it looks as if there was an error
during the install.
