	It was going great right up to this point where I get this trying
to compile MesaLib-dri ...

mklib: ERROR: Don't know how to make a static/shared library
for DragonFly mklib: Please add necessary commands to mklib

	... I hacked the mklib script in place and changed 'FreeBSD' to
'FreeBSD' | 'DragonFly' in the obvious place.

	Unfortunately once all was done starting the X server with dri
enabled simply crashes the system (stop dead and reboot with no messages).
The last thing in the Xorg.0.log is:

drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card0
drmOpenDevice: open result is 8, (OK)

	The only good news in all this is that I half expected this to
happen. This combination of a Radeon 9200SE and an ASUS A8V has always
crashed under dri in much this way, although I had been hoping that an up
to date drm and agp set might fix it :)

	Any suggestions as to how I might go about tracking this little gem
down ?
