Yeah, I had that exact problem. I would have fixed it myself by now,
but autotools scares me. >_<

The new version *does* compile if you do *not* pass the --disable-dri
flag to ./configure, and you have all of GL present at compile-time.

that still tries to build when --disable-dri is given. It then fails
because the DRI header files have been disabled.

I'm sure we only need a one-line change to a configure script somewhere.
