And make install into the right directory, right ? (or cp intel_drv.so ...)

If 2.3.0 is broken and 2.2.0 works fine, you should do:
git bisect start
git bisect good xf86-video-intel-2.2.0
git bisect bad xf86-video-intel-2.3.0
Then git will choose a commit to test (in the middle of the above
range). Run autogen, make and make install. If it works, you run "git
bisect good", if it breaks, run "git bisect bad". Git will propose
another commit in the middle of the remaining range. Do the same test,
... again and again until git finds the exact commit breaking things.
When it is done, git bisect --reset
