I don't know. However, it's not a source package (deb-src), but a
regular package (deb), containing source files. Whatever.

What fails for me are pbdemo, pbinfo, pbutil, vgears, vindex, vtest,
xdemo, xrotfontdemo and xuserotfont. I attach the error messages.
However, I could compile shape, wincopy and xfont. When I run shape, it
instantly freezes my system. All I can do is use the Magic Keys to
reboot. xfont works, and wincopy gives me the following:

Sorry, I wrote that with my original problem in mind (Mesa does not
work or is unstable). However, I solved the problem of Mesa not being
recognized by some apps by using LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libGL.so (see my
bug report). Nevertheless, for me the real problem is that Mesa is
unstable on my system, i.e. although I can now start, lets say,
tremulous, it freezes my system after a while.
So to be clear: do you think what I just described is a problem in
openchrome/mesa/dri? Or am I confused ;-) ?

See the last two paragraphs by Thomas at the end of:
So, yes, it is a deficiency in the openchrome driver: a lack of
special tweaks and workarounds for the *800 VIA chips, due to a
lack of documentation.
