Building Xorg 7.1 from tarballs

Thank you greatly for your clarification. After extracting Mesa-6.5 & removing the --disable-glx option, I was able to successfully build Xorg-7.1. Now I just have to find a method to correct the flatness on my head from banging it on the desk for days...
As an aside, I am sure that I am not the only one that has trouble following the documentation. Who/how would (it) be to update the website?
Thanks again for your reply,

If you just want to build stable Xorg-7.1 and not mangle around with
the source, just use Mesa-6.5 instead of Mesa-6.5.1. The Xserver glx
module unfortunately needs to be synchronized with Mesa, and Mesa-6.5
was the newest available release when Xorg-7.1 was came out. This
should probably be in the release notes or something.
I think it's OK to have your system Mesa (libGL) be 6.5.1 but have the
Xserver (glx) build against Mesa-6.5.
