bootstrapping is always fun. :(

I'm not sure, from your mail, whether the following would work:
 - build & install wayland-libs,
 - build & install mesa against wayland-libs,
 - build & install wayland-clients, without building wayland-libs

If that works, then I guess it's not *that* bad.

If that doesn't work, and if wayland-libs need to be rebuilt against
mesa-built-against-wayland-libs, then back to square 1: bootstrapping
is always fun. :(

[I haven't tried anything yet, I've been busy on the (regular-X,
regular-mesa) packaging side.]
