OK.  First, I had downloaded the most recent stable, but the xorg build gave me
build errors for that version (7.0.3) so I downloaded it directly from git,
which gave me version 7.1.0 and cleared the build errors (after I hand-edited my
self-installed gl.pc file).  I found no file to indicate that I needed any
particular flags on build, but I did get a drm build error, so before I built
mesa, i found glproto, and build & installed that.

If you want me to activate drm in the mesa build, I got mesa to build via  I didn't see any configure generated from mesa's autogen, so if you
know the right way to prod mesa into building for drm, I'd appreciate a hint.
