 When building Xorg-7.0.0, I got to the stage of 'Installation of Xorg
 applications'. At this stage I was told I needed to install MesaLib-6.4.2.
 I started to do this but compilation of MesaLib failed with ld: cannot
 find -lXxf86vm. Installing the Xorg library libXxf86vm-X11R7.0-1.0.0 fixed
 this issue (in that MesaLib was then able to compile). libXxf86vm is not
 among the 17 libraries listed as dependencies in the 'Xorg Libraries'
 section of the Xorg-7.0.0 page.

 I hope this is helpful.
