I'm sorry, I need some more specific instructions than this.

* XFree86 periodically takes snapshots of the Mesa CVS tree for inclusion
  in the XFree86 sources (xc/extras/Mesa)
* I periodically generate packages from XFree86 CVS (if they build and work
  on my boxen)

Given those facts, what would you like me to do, specifically?  It seems
too complicated to me to track Mesa sources in my XFree86 packages
independently of what XFree86 itself is doing.
