[PATCH] Build instructions - the Wayland git repo has been split.

The repo has been split into http://cgit.freedesktop.org/wayland/wayland/
for the libraries and http://cgit.freedesktop.org/wayland/wayland-demos/
for the demo applications (compositor, terminal, flower, etc.) so
that Mesa no longer needs to be built twice.  This updates the build
instructions for that change.

 <p>Wayland uses the mesa EGL stack, and all extensions required to run
 EGL on KMS are now upstream on the master branch.  You'll need to pull
 it from git, because 7.10 does not include required commits related to
-BGRA8888 and wayland-egl.  First build it without the Wayland EGL
-platform, because the libraries that requires are not yet installed.

 <p>With mesa and libxkbcommon in place, we can checkout and build Wayland.
 Aside from mesa, Wayland may need development packages for gdk-pixbuf-2.0,
 libudev, libdrm, xcb-dri2, xcb-fixes (for X compositor) cairo-gl,
-glib-2.0, gdk-2.0 (for poppler) and poppler-glib.  To satisfy mesa
