 Noted in the libdrm instructions:

 1) It says to ensure that you have libdrm installed in the same prefix as
 your X Window system. Except X isn't installed yet, so how would one know?

 2) Why should libdrm be installed in the X location? What's wrong with
 /usr? We install freeglut in /usr and it is more X'ish than libdrm.

 Feel free to close this bug as wontfix if these items are of no concern.
