I happened to have this error (without the xinerama stuff though), but
was very late in the night and I thought I messed up too much. Decided
was bed time. Next time in just that kind of amnesia you were talking
about, I took the short way: cleaned the directory, checked for new
stuff to pull, autoconf, and built.

I'm sorry but when it comes to those strange autoconf issues I'm just
not able to help. Your Xorg installation shloud be checked though:
> configure: WARNING: X11/extensions/Xinerama.h: present but cannot be compiled

doesn't sound good to me...
But these are just my 2c
