Ok, here is what happens:

This failure is only reproducible with the following config options:

Which makes it pretty obvious what is to be blamed here. With those
options set no installable libraries will be build below src/mapi, the
only target is a static glapi.la. As lib_LTLIBRARIES is empty in that
case the install-mesa-links target has no dependencies and gets executed
immediately. This fails as it races with the compilation to create
the .libs dir.

As the install-mesa-links target works perfectly fine with an empty
lib_LTLIBRARIES the fix is simply to not depends on the .libs directory
for the state file of this target. A patch is on the list.
