Unfortunately, the script you followed doesn't seem to tell you about
handling the XKB data. You can either install xkeyboard-config or
follow the instructions for "Making the keyboard work" here:
Or, as a quick and dirty method:
ln -sn /usr/share/xkb /opt/gfx-test/share/X11/xkb
ln -s /usr/bin/xkbcomp /opt/gfx-test/bin

I don't know why that's happening since the log seems to indicate the
DRI2 is loaded. Maybe you want to try LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose glxinfo.
