Did you do this:

$ cat /etc/lsb-release
Here's a modified procedure based on the above that successfully created
the package 
The build-dep command aborted complaining about unmet dependency  of
E mesa-swx11-source 
I installed this package manually from here
And then run build-dep again
$ apt-get build-dep vnc4server
$ cd vnc4-4.1.1+xorg1.0.2
I got the same access.c:1459 compilation error which was due to missing
compilation flag.
This missing compilation flag is set in env. var of the configure script
of xorg-server_1.0.2
$ debian/rules binary

Sounds like it's the missing mesa-swx11 it's complaining about
