I basically was changing the Makefile.am files to include a file (from 
Mesa) listing all the source files, rather than have the source files 
explicitly listed in each Makefile.am.

The problem is the "include sources" line I was going to use is 
evaluated at auto-conf time, before the Mesa symlinks have been made 
(the symlink-mesa.sh script).

See the "Re: fixing the recurring Mesa build problem" thread from last
