[Mesa-dev] [PATCH 04/11] configure: allow building shared-glapi powered libgl-xlib

XXX: With this one done, we can finally transition with enforcing
shared-glapi, and

 - link the dri modules against libglapi.so, add --no-undefined to the
 - drop the dlopen(libglapi.so/libGL.so, RTLD_GLOBAL) workarounds
in the loaders - libGL, libEGL and libgbm.
 - start killing off/cleaning up the dispatch ?

The caveats:
1) up-to what stage do we care about static libraries
 - libgl (either dri or xlib based)
 - osmesa
 - libEGL

2) how about other platforms (scons) ?
 - currently the scons uses static glapi,
 - would we need the dlopen(...) on windows ?
