Gallium nine doesn't depend on DRI3.
However for now, the implementation Wine side that makes use of it uses 
The interface between Mesa and Wine makes it possible to implement 
non-DRI3 backends.

Thus I think it's ok the Mesa part builds, even if no non-DRI3 backend 
exists yet and that DRI3 is not available on the system.
