There have been 3 Ubuntu releases since this.  10.10 was EOLed last
month, meaning it is no-longer even supported by Ubuntu, and you really
should upgrade.  Wayland is, in stark contrast, rather bleeding edge.
That doesn't mean you can't get it to work.  But you're more likely to
come across problems due to specific versions of build dependencies not
being properly defined.

The very bottom of the build instructions includes some variables to set to
get more verbose output, which might be helpful.

This is obnoxious.

Good idea.  Mesa configure output from a build that (probably) works:
Might be useful to make sure you have everything enabled that is listed

Somebody recently mentioned it would be nice if we could document
everything that needs to show up in that output for everything to work.
