What I ended up doing was building Mesa 6.5.2 separately. The
original plan was to libtoolize their build scripts, but it ended up
being a huge hassle. In the end, I ended up using the
'Linux'|'OpenBSD'|'GNU' target in their mklib script instead of the
completely broken 'NetBSD' target. Saved me a great deal of pain.
