Some time ago there was a thread ,,fixing the recurring Mesa build problem'' 
trying to fix small problem with building xserver with different mesa 

I have a basic question - why Mesa sources are needed to build xserver? 
xserver build stuff includes some mesa source files and later links them into 
non-public libtool library and uses it - why all these required files are not 
in separate public mesa library which later would be linked with xserver?
