Ok. I forgot about that and missed it in configure --help.

I tried again with:

   ./configure CFLAGS="-g -O0" --with-mesa-source=../Mesa-6.4.1

but it gives errors:

configure: error: Failed to link Mesa source tree.  Please specify a proper path to Mesa sources, or 
disable GLX.

I couldn't manually find depthstencil.c in the Mesa-6.4.1 tree, but this is the mesa
recommended by the Xorg wiki.

depthstencil.c is in the Mesa-6.5 tree, but this build gave other errors.
