Command Explanations

--disable-runtime-deps: This switch disables checking for Xorg Protocol Headers and libX11 which are only required for Xorg at runtime.

--with-xkb-rules-symlink=xorg: By default, the XKB rules installed are named "base". This creates symlinks named "xorg" to those rules, which is the default name used by Xorg.
