from xmesa.h:

 * Mesa/X11 interface.  This header file serves as the documentation for
 * the Mesa/X11 interface functions.
 * Note: this interface isn't intended for user programs.  It's primarily
 * just for implementing the pseudo-GLX interface.

So, which packages tries to include that file?

I don't think that we should do your hack from above, we should better fix the
package to not include that file, given that you just created an empty one so
this include files isn't really needed.
