There are a bunch of xorg-devel packaged needed (xorg-macros,
mesa-dri, etc.). If you want to install into your current setup, pass
--prefix=/usr to autogen.sh. make sure to back up your existing
ati_drv.so and radeon_drv.so before running make install.

see above. just back up your existing driver (in
/usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/) and run make install.
