Here's the patch again with some small changes. This time I actually
built xserver a couple times, so I'm pretty sure it really works.

First patch is to Mesa to add all the headers to the sources files.
This adds one missing file in src/mesa/shader/slang/library. I pruned
out the shader/programopt.[ch] as they were never used by Xorg. Also,
I needed to add grammar.c to the shader/grammar header list as it's
included by grammar_mesa.c.

Second patch is to xserver and is pretty big. GL/
contains all the needed sources from Mesa. These should match the
values in the Mesa sources and build the same objects when the lists
were also kept in the's. Then there are the list targets
which just echo out the Mesa sources for
