Compilation of x11/libxcb just failed for me:

configure:11743: checking for XCBPROTO
configure:11750: $PKG_CONFIG --exists --print-errors "xcb-proto >= 1.6"
Package xcb-proto was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `xcb-proto.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'xcb-proto' found

Yet x11/xcb-proto was actually installed.

It turned out that devel/pkg-config was missing, instead /usr/bin/pkg-config was used, which did not know about xcb-proto - but about other native packages. So it might be possible that native libraries were used in the packages installed so far, instead of their pkgsrc counterparts.

Both x11/xcb-proto and x11/libxcb define "USE_TOOLS+=pkg-config", but this seems not to trigger the installation of devel/pkg-config. Has something changed wrt to this in the past? I have never had this problem before.

 Hmmm, even after installing devel/pkg-config manually, I get the same 
 error. Only after adding

 TOOLS_PATH.pkg-config=/usr/pkgsrc/20110926/bin/pkg-config

 to mk.conf, I was able to build this package.
