Current release of Mesa is 7.9...

Assuming you are running a recent-ish desktop Linux distribution with
xorg and everything, you should be able to use egl_x11_swrast.so at a
minimum.  You certainly need an EGL driver since most EGL functions
are finally delegated to the driver.

This page might help: http://mesa3d.org/egl.html. It doesn't mention
the "non-classical" drivers, but has enough information to get you
