I think I foud what "mesa" you are talking about: graphics/libGL. Well
if you pay attention to the contents of bsd.mesalib.mk then you will
see that it already recognizes a WITHOUT_XCB knob. That knob is there
since the update X.org ports to 7.4+, last january. But I don't need
to tell this to you. have been updating that file for ten months, so
you know its contents.
So, in the very end, you are attempting to convince me that that
giving the user the opportunity to turn off XCB is accetpable in
libGL, but not in libX11. This is contradictory.
By the way, the assertion that "having a non-xcb enabled libx11 would
cause weird build/run time issues" is false.
My preferred quotation of Robert Louis Stevenson is "You cannot
make an omelette without breaking eggs". Not because I like the
omelettes, but because I like the sound of eggs being broken.
