Both :-)
My preference is always what "just works" out of the box, so if the
default was to download Mesa and libdrm only if the installed version
wasn't recent enough, that'd be good - since both still have to be
built & installed, and aren't in the build script. Until these two
components configure and build like the rest of them the user will
still have to intervene (as compared to the ideal fire-and-forget
build process).

This is from the perspective of merely a user, though, so please
consider this just my two cents worth. I'd hack something up but it's
waay past bedtime.

By the way, I feel a little silly if you attribute any changes to me,
since I consider my contribution rather trivial.
