@John Arnold 
There is a really simple workaround till this is fixed.  

This worked for me and let me compile xorgxrdp.  Not sure what your use
case is but...

step 1

$ sudo touch /usr/include/X11/fonts/fontutil.h

This file is owned by root:root, with mode 0o644.

Then edit that file and put the following contents into it:

#ifndef _FONTUTIL_H_
#define _FONTUTIL_H_

#include <X11/fonts/FSproto.h>

extern int FontCouldBeTerminal(FontInfoPtr);
extern int CheckFSFormat(fsBitmapFormat, fsBitmapFormatMask, int *, int *,
                         int *, int *, int *);
extern void FontComputeInfoAccelerators(FontInfoPtr);

extern void GetGlyphs ( FontPtr font, unsigned long count,
                        unsigned char *chars, FontEncoding fontEncoding,
                        unsigned long *glyphcount, CharInfoPtr *glyphs );
extern void QueryGlyphExtents ( FontPtr pFont, CharInfoPtr *charinfo,
                                unsigned long count, ExtentInfoRec *info );
extern Bool QueryTextExtents ( FontPtr pFont, unsigned long count,
                               unsigned char *chars, ExtentInfoRec *info );
extern Bool ParseGlyphCachingMode ( char *str );
extern void InitGlyphCaching ( void );
extern void SetGlyphCachingMode ( int newmode );
extern int add_range ( fsRange *newrange, int *nranges, fsRange **range,
                       Bool charset_subset );

#endif /* _FONTUTIL_H_ */

                          = = = = = = = = = =  =

Save the file and then do your compile/make etc and it should succeed.

Again, this is just a workaround till the bug gets fixed but it works
for me.

Title:
  libxfont1-dev is missing fontutil.h

Status in libxfont package in Ubuntu:
  Won't Fix
Status in xorg-server package in Ubuntu:
  Invalid
Status in libxfont source package in Xenial:
  New
Status in xorg-server source package in Xenial:
  In Progress

Bug description:
  [Impact]
  /usr/include/xorg/dixfont.h includes X11/fonts/fontutil.h.

  fontutil.h is contained in libxfont1-dev package not libxfont-dev
  package (version 2.0.1).

  I am trying to build xorgxrdp and it fails because fontutil.h is
  missing.

  In Ubuntu, libxfont1-dev package is required however libxfont1-dev and
  libxfont-dev cannot be installed together. This is the problem.

  Package info: Ubuntu 16.04

  $  dpkg -la | grep -e xserver-xorg-dev -e libxfont-dev
  ii  libxfont-dev                       1:2.0.1-3~ubuntu16.04.1                
    amd64        X11 font rasterisation library (development headers)
  ii  xserver-xorg-dev                   2:1.18.4-0ubuntu0.3                    
    amd64        Xorg X server - development files

  [Test case]
  xserver-xorg-dev needs to change the dependency on libxfont-dev to 
libxfont1-dev.

  [Regression potential]
  none, this is just to reflect the current state
