Tom, I thought the issue here was that mesa glx would get built with
TLS, but xserver glx wouldn't. It seems like what you'd really want to
do is get this macro into mesa so it could autodetect TLS capabilities
and then use some value from mesa pkgconfig to detect how mesa glx was

What do you think?
