    Than you for your reply Daniel/Julien, I had the line "do_dir mesa . 
mesa" in the "" and with the command

$ cd "where_I_downloaded_xorg_and_mesa"
$ PATH="where_I_install_xorg"/bin:$PATH ./util/modular/ -m "where_I_downloaded_xorg_and_mesa"/mesa  "where_I_install_xorg"

now Xorg compile successfully.

    If I use Xorg form git I need to use Mesa from git, do you think it 
is possible to add the line "do_dir mesa . mesa" to the "" 
script, with this modification when Xorg is updated also the Mesa is 
updated ?

    When I download from git what is the Xorg version 7.3 or pre 7.4 ?

Best regards.


PS: There is an "error" in the "wiki/ModularDevelopersGuide" in the 
usage of the "" and "" the "-d" is to run 
"make distcheck"  but in the text there is this comment "the -D option 
to run make distcheck".
