The patches I pointed to you apply to the 2.14 branch. I haven’t tried
with trunk, though.

The two Ubuntu patches may be what you are looking for, since version
2.14.7 builds fine using them.

I’d prefer if the original author of the patches, or at least someone
who clearly understands the rationale behind them, could submit the
bugs. Here is the corresponding changelog entry (from Sébastien
Bacher) :
  * debian/patches/071_correct_directfb_declarations.patch:
    - rename functions for the offscreen rendering changes
  * debian/patches/072_workaround_directfb_build.patch:
    - don't use an incorrect structure variable to fix build issue
