[arch-general] libx11/xorgproto dependency

I use a customised version of xf86-input-evdev (I tweaked the source
code to better support my trackball). This package is now broken as
xorgproto used to provide resourceproto and scrnsaverproto but the
current version does not provide it anymore.

I suppose somebody will fix this broken package at some stage, but in
the meantime, what is the advice on this? Should I use xorgproto from
AUR instead of the "official" xorgproto if I need to rebuild the
package? (It is working fine, I want to know just in case.)
