I think that's just how it's going to be because glcore depends on the
xserver and internal parts of mesa. The alternative is to go back to
pulling in nearly all of the mesa source into the build. This broke
often, and now all that's needed is a few files to build GLX.

You're best to just treat GLcore like it's a separate package, just
that it happens to use the same mesa sources. I have a patch
pending[1] that should make the process like this:

1. Build mesa DRI using --with-driver=dri
2. Build xserver
3. Build mesa GLcore using --with-driver=glcore
