I like to install xorg and related programs in /opt. I noticed that the
instructions for several packages have changed so that only /usr is

suspect they are not using pkgconfig properly.
For the main build, I found I needed:
For GLU, the instructions are a little skimpy in that we don't mention
that the user needs to do:
tar -xf $DIR/$GLU.tar.bz2 &&
Generally, we do specify the tarball extraction for all tarballs after
the first. The variables are not really needed, but I find them convenient.
The GLU build also needs:
./configure --prefix=$XORG_PREFIX --disable-static
if building for a location other than /usr.
I am not recommending changes, but merely documenting what I found.
