Don't know about mesadef.py, but mesa.def itself is used, as `git grep` 

$ git grep -C1 '\<mesa.def\>'
src/mesa/drivers/windows/gdi/SConscript-sources = [
src/mesa/drivers/windows/gdi/SConscript:    'mesa.def',
src/mesa/drivers/windows/gdi/SConscript-    'wgl.c',

But I think the warning at the top of mesa.def is misleading.  That file 
has benn manually edited several times now.

Strictly speaking .def aren't necessary -- `declspec(dllexport)` are 
sufficient, but I personally like .def files because they cause build 
failures if symbols are missing, or sometimes have different types (due 
to symbol decorators used by stdcall convention).

In short, let's keep mesa.def, but we should update the comment.
