In order to build GLcore, the xserver source needs access to the full
Mesa source. Unfortunately, all the Mesa source file names are
hardcoded into the xserver Makefile's. So, you either have to patch
things up so that your xorg-server files match the Mesa you're trying
to use, or you can use the Mesa that the released xorg-server knows

For xorg-server-1.1.x, that's Mesa-6.5.
