It seems that X.org does not use the passed-in path (via -m to
build-from-tarballs.sh). This means that Mesa must be installed prior to
runnin build-from-tarballs.sh. However it depends on some of the X.org
packages. This does not lead to circular dependencies, but it probably
requires those packages to be built twice -- once to satisfy Mesa's
requirements and once more by build-from-tarballs.sh. Is this really the
I just modified build-from-tarballs.sh to build the dependencies, stop so
that I can install Mesa and then continue so that it builds the rest of
X.org. Now xdriinfo configures fine, but the even the first compilation
after that fails to find GL/glx.h which is in /usr/local/include/glx.h
(installed by xcb) and also in <path to Mesa>/niclude/GL/glx/h (here <path
to Mesa> was passed to build-from-tarballs.sh via -m). I'm going to
investigate this later on. Hoever, any help in advance would be
