After a great suggestion, I also updated X. I do not use this machine
interactively, but X does include a builtin version of MesaLib.

This alone did not solve the issue until I added:
to /etc/mk.conf

MesaLibe was being called as a dependency (to a dependency) for
that I wanted for a plugin to a WordPress install I am hosting locally...

Once I updated X and added MesaLib builtin to mk.conf, I could build
without building the pkgsrc version of MesaLib.

Based on how pkgsrc MesaLib build failed, I still suspect something is
broken with the package, but with this workaround, I no longer care.
