Hmm, I did at least some build testing with native Xorg before landing
the update to try to preempt this sort of issue. I might have missed
something. How current is your -current? The latest Mesa requires
libdrm greater than 2.4.107. It looks like -current has 2.4.109 since
9th of January so it should be detected as a sufficient native
component assuming the builtin logic is not wrong. I'm also not sure
why you'd want to install pkgsrc Mesa when you run native Xorg. It will
likely cause problems. Anyway, I'll have a look to see if I can
reproduce the problem.
