Excellent stuff with these script improvements! I've only tested it a
bit, but so far very good.

Btw, neither of the two patches apply cleanly to the git_xorg you
sent. Attached is one that does (real trivial though).

Maybe the `find ...` stanzas should have the -L option in case e.g
/usr/local/include/GL is a symlink?

Also, if there's two mesa versions available, one in /usr and the
other in /usr/local, the local one should probably take precedence.

I've attached another patch (git_xorg-findfile.diff) that checks in
/usr/local before /usr and follows symlinks.

The script will find both versions of osmesa.h, and the version string
will be the two version strings appended in the order found, which
almost works as intended :-)

What do you think?

Unrelated question: how do you get a recent enough Mesa on debian
unstable w/o compiling it yourself? Are packages for Mesa 6.5.x
available somewhere? Ubuntu packages?
