I ran the "make" commands you specified but still do not have a i915.o
file on my system.  Here is what I have related to i915:

$ locate i915

By the way, glxinfo | grep rendering returns no.  I also loaded the
graphics/dri port and graphics/linux_dri is already installed.

Any other suggestions?  Thanks in advance!
