What packages did you install/compile to get dri working? Apparently,
the Mach64 code is in a state of flux and you should use CVS
(dri-trunk). You could add

deb http://people.debian.org/~daenzer/dri-mach64-sid/ ./
deb-src http://people.debian.org/~daenzer/dri-mach64-sid/ ./

to your sources.list if you are running sid. See
or google for daenzer mach64 or something like that.
