Xorg dropped an old header file that has been obsolete for a while.  The
driver compiles just fine after updating to the latest evtouch version
(I don't think that's necessary, but we might as well, right?), dropping
all the patches and making a few trivial modifications.  Untested, since
I don't have the hardware.  If there are more driver build failures like
this, they should be very easy to fix.
