This might not be posible untill there is a sutable Xserver avalable !with
out! using DRI's old xc tree, read below.

No, the current unofficial pkgs use the OLD xc tree to build Mesa and we
also need to build X from that tree.  Since the Mesa tree has changed the
xc tree is now totaly bittroten, with no reason to correct this.  I don't
think it will be posible to build the Xserver binary w/o using a(read as
any) xc tree.  The only solution I see is to port the needed, if any,
changes to a working and maintained xc tree.

When this is done the only problem that remains is the 2d Xdrivers, as I
woulden't expect any one to pickup the MeargedFB code.  I think with
little effort the Mesa tree can be made to build a wider veriaty of
Xdrivers since currenty the 3d Xdrivers are built in this tree.

I think this is the best way to get the Debian DRI pkgs building again.  I
would hope that some one familure with Mesa builds would atleast create
the makefiles and symlinked headers for the 2d Xdrivers to build on.  The
real problem is how to get the changes out of the old xc tree, this I
can't solve but I know it must be done, if it must be done.
