The problem was that you have to build "drm" *before* you build x.  What I 
did was I followed http://wiki.x.org/wiki/ModularDevelopersGuide with a look 
at http://www.intellinuxgraphics.org/install.html for guidance. I used 
git-clone to download the Mesa and drm sources to the same /tmp/src where X 
suggest you put its modular tree before building. Then I did the following 
to build libdrm:

$ cd /tmp/src/drm
$ ./configure --prefix=/tmp/modular
$ make
$ make install

This will put libdrm.so (.so.1, .so.2 and .so.2.3.0) in the /tmp/modular/lib 
directory. Once that is done, then X should build with:

$ cd /tmp/src
$ PATH=/tmp/modular/bin:$PATH ./util/modular/build.sh -m /tmp/{path to 
Mesa} -n -D /tmp/modular > build.log 2>&1

(disregard the "-m /tmp/{path to Mesa}" if you are not building Mesa)

Keep the faith, it was a pain to get all the pieces of the puzzle in the 
right place, but the results were well worth it.
