yes, it's because I removed everything that was updated in OSX  
10.5.2 ... I forgot that the OS update just updates X11User, not X11SDK

No.  I quoted it because it's not really broken... just the headers  
aren't what you need to compile the server (you could also just  
install the headers manually from the *proto packages from x.org).

If you install 2.1.3, then 2.1.4, you'll have all the headers and  
binaries.  If you install just 2.1.4, you'll have all the latest  

2.2.0 will include *all* bits of X11, not just updated bits.
