I was merely mentioning that the xlib-glx are in worse shape than the dri one.

That aside:
IIRC previously you mentioned that libGL/OSMesa must be static
libraries. If that is still the case, then DRI based GLX won't cut it.
Alternatively if you can point out any specifics that would be
amazing. Quick skim shows a few extras needed:

* GL side:
glapi + dri1/dri2 or dri3 specific: eg. xcb-dri2, xcb-dri3, xcb-present...
* [software] driver side:
* and glapi, itself
pthread, c

I've been wondering about 'splitting out' some of the DRI bits out,
although the topic is very subtle.
Depending on your specifics we might think of something though.
