xcb-proto will find python-2.7 before finding python3 if both are 
installed, resulting in Python scripts in the wrong path. I'm not sure if this 
breaks functionality, but it's clearly not the intended result. If you want to 
build against python3 but still have 
python-2.7 installed for a handful of legacy packages, you should pass 
PYTHON=python3 to the configure command. Not really sure how to handle 
this in the book. Options are to explain as above (provide a second 
configure command or just explain to add the variable), or extend the 
patch to remove the python logic from the configure script, just leave 
the python3 logic. Same thing for libxcb.

Next is libva, which has a required dependency on Mesa. The note in 
Mesa says to build libva without GLX which makes it clear enough, but it 
still seems a bit odd. Should the Mesa dependency not be recommended as 
opposed to required?
