No problem, I just finished testing the scripts against the "stable"
xorg.  It seems to work thus far.

I discovered that glxgears and glxinfo are not normally part of Xorg.
To get them installed, look into the scripts I have:
On step-4,
add the following after: make linux &&
and before: make &&

cd progs/xdemos &&
make &&
cp glx{gears,info} /usr/bin &&

after that is done, glxgears should work.  There are other programs
there in which you may/may not want.  They are part of the MesaDemos
package, but for some reason lack a 'make install'.  They also get
extracted to "Mesa-4.6.1" which happens to be the same directory as the
Mesa-4.6.1 library itself.  So when you extract both, you lose sight of
the MesaDemos sources.

Let me know if you are getting problems with direct rendering.  I
cannot seem to get mine to work, even with an older kernel+modules I use
on my more stable lfs-5.1.1 system.

BTW, I have a radeon 7500.
