The graphics/Mesa package installs several example/demo program sources,
as well as their executable object files, into the ${X11BASE}/share
hierarchy, which should contain architecture-independent files only.

Install the Mesa package.

Either don't build the example programs and install their sources only,
or install the MD files into a more suitable directory.
