Yep, it does.

This is not needed any more, see commit 	64f924fbf513b5f91b3f2bcf5767f6fe927d3f7a:

Kill off --with-mesa-source completely
There were a few spots left in the source that were using the --with-mesa-source
defined headers or the now removed $(top_srcdir)/GL directory. These aren't
needed anymore as all the necessary source for GLX is in $(top_srcdir)/glx.
