Am I using the "ati" or "vesa" driver?

I have not installed glamor from the glamor tree.
I want to use glamor from the xorg-server tree.

So, I build and install xorg (with the "--enable-glamor" option), then after this I build and install the xf86-video-ati driver.
But what is strange, is that as you can see before, a shared library is required when I type "startx".

I have said that I would like to use the glamor from the xorg-server tree, so I have not a installed file.
Indeed, the file is provided by glamor from the glamor tree only.
Are you agree?
