I'm somewhat puzzled by the xcb-util/setup.hint file:

  requires: libxcb-atom-devel libxcb-aux-devel libxcb-event-devel
	    libxcb-icccm-devel libxcb-image-devel libxcb-keysyms-devel
	    libxcb-property-devel libxcb-render-util-devel libxcb-reply-devel

All the devel packages?  That doesn't look right.  I would have
expected xcb-util to pull in all the library packages, but not the
devel packages.

Other than that, it looks good to me.
