Question BFLS config error with libxcb

I've succesfully built LFS 7.4 twice, and LFS 7.5 Systemd. With the 7.5 Systemd edition I decided to go take it to the next level and attempt BLFS :-) All the issues I encoutered during all builds up until now, I managed to solve on my own by doeing a LOT of browsing and reading, but with the libxcb package I'm kinda lost. When I run the config it gives me the following:
autoreconf: Entering directory `.'
autoreconf: not using Gettext
autoreconf: running: aclocal --force -I m4
autoreconf: tracing
autoreconf: running: libtoolize --copy --force

I've already checked the info pages and the bug page of libxcb but I couldn't find nothing relevant to this error.
And right now, to be honest, my mind is fuzzing a bit, and I feel a little lost :-)

OK, found it...really dumb and stupid but I'll share it anyway....
When I started building the X-bunch, for some reason the XORG_PREFIX didn't last (maybe it's supposed to, I don't know...), so at that time I figured that to make life easier on myself, I renamed bash files to file.bak, and copy-pasted the setup for the X variables to my /etc/profile so that way they would be set upon login....unfortunatly, I didn't remove the "\" character from the paste....hence the error.
I do wonder why this is the first time this error came up..
