Well, I got past dix, and anything else I had gotten to so far, and I now had a
stop in xserver/hw/xfree86.  A linking line is demanding -lGLu, and, well, I
haven't got one.  I  have libGLU with various endings, but no libGLu*.  OK, I
tried to find what the heck was calling this out, and even though I did a
recursive grep from the root of the xorg soource (one higher than xserver) I
could neither find any reference to libGLu* nor can I find any library with a
name like that (when searching with find).  I can't find where the heck that lib
is being called out from (because I would have investigated, and maybe changed
GLu for GLU).

Any idea where that libGLu came from?  I have added in builds for dri2proto,
mesa, and drm.  I can't figure it out.  I already checked both of my 2 pkgconfig
directories for a .pc callout.  I just can't figure out where it's coming from.

Nice thing is, I'm very nearly finished with this build, finally.
