Your group is currently "mkpasswd".  This indicates that 
the /etc/passwd (and possibly /etc/group) files should be rebuilt. 
See the man pages for mkpasswd and mkgroup then, for example, run 
mkpasswd -l [-d] > /etc/passwd 
mkgroup  -l [-d] > /etc/group 
Note that the -d switch is necessary for domain users. 
--bash-->  /etc/profile

I don't think it's available, but you don't need it. Just pass --disable-xinerama. 
And if by latest you mean 1.2.14pre16, file a bug report for the author. Xinerama isn't mandatory, so the test shouldn't make configure stop.
