This has come up before, so I've added it to the FAQ:

Q. I'm trying to build the VNC server but the system can't find 'xkb'!

XKB is an extension to the X server which isn't needed at all.  Make sure
that in the Xvnc/config files BuildXKB is set to NO, not YES.

I'm trying to compile vnc-3.3.1_unixsrc.tar.gz for Solaris2.6/x86.
But 'make world' results in two errors:
1. ...
   making Makefiles in programs/Xserver/Xext...
        mv Makefile Makefile.bak
   making Makefiles in programs/Xserver/xkb...
   sh: xkb: does not exist
