The train of thought had left the station, apologies.

Hmm the command line seems rather iffy.

The LDFLAGS/linker flags should not be mixed with LIBADD/library dependencies.
In the above example -Wl,-Bsymbolic and -Wl,--gc-sections is thrown in
between the libraries while the whole thing is wrapped in
Even if that doesn't cause a problem now, it's something to cleanup.

Unrelated nitpick - there is a double "deps_xcb_dri3 = []" in meson.build

After a lot of of head scratching I noticed what's wrong.
The dependencies of loader_dri3 are off:
dep_xshmfence, dep_xcb_present, dep_xcb_dri3, dep_xcb_sync, dep_x11_xcb,
dep_xext, dep_xdamage, dep_xcb_glx, dep_libdrm,

x11-xcb xcb xcb-dri3 xcb-xfixes xcb-present xcb-sync xshmfence libdrm

So one should really move the following to glx and (ideally) sort the
remaining more like autotools.
dep_xext, dep_xdamage, dep_xcb_glx,
