Here's how I did it:

Get quilt (for example from debian sources):


Simply do './configure --prefix /usr && make all install'[1]

Then build the xserver with dpkg-buildpackage specifying the -d flag
(flex is not really needed and quilt is there, but just won't show on
the package list).

If you start building all the deps of quilt (of which apparently
nothing is really needed ;), you'll just end up building half of
debian... One of the shortcomings of debian package management :/

[1] If you don't want to do this on every target reset, you might want
to use /host_usr as the prefix, that is a place for custom tools that
the scratchbox user builds. It's visible on all targets and doesn't go
away on target resets.
