Eric, I tried that branch but it's far from being in working state. When I
attempt to build it, it tries to find pkg-config. This doesn't make sense for a
MSVC build. As far as I know that's a Linux, MSYS2 and Cygwin thing and has
nothing to do with MSVC:

The following Python versions were detected:
1. Python 2.7

Note: Experimental /enablemeson command-line argument is set. We will attempt
to build Mesa3D if you pick any of the folowing Python versions even if it is
known to fail for now:

5. Python 3.6

Select Python version by entering its index from the table above:5

Using Python 3.6.5 from C:\Software\DEVELO~1\projects\mesa\py3\python.exe.

WARNING: Python 3.x support is experimental.

Install/update python packages (y/n):

Begin LLVM build. Only needs to run once for each ABI and version. Proceed

Begin mesa build. Proceed (y/n):y

Use Ninja build system instead of MsBuild (y/n); less storage device strain and
maybe faster build:

Do you want to clean build (y/n):y

To test for this issue I probably only have to add -Dshared-glapi=true and
Dosmesa=gallium. Dgles1 and Dgles2 are not needed as the only requirement is an
osmesa build with shared-glapi. But for those options to have any meaningful
effect the build has to get further.
