Something is missing yet.

I have modified the xorg.conf and now it works.
I've got lots of problems with DRI, though, and I'm
not sure that what I've done is the right path to the build.

In my binaries now I'm missing xterm (is this supposed to be?)
and glxinfo and glxgears.
Also, if I do a "ldd" to one of the demos in MesaDemos...
then I find that it links to libGL.so of Mesa. So I find that
I'm missing also libGL.so from Xorg.  (is this supposed to be?)

As a result, I don't get hardware accelerated support
to OpenGL from my radeon card.

Stuff for the old monolithic 6.8.2 is the only one I can
find googl'ing .  Any hint or link to docs in the net
is much appreciated.
