Hi Matthieu - did you run into any issues building components from 
x11-drivers?  specifically i'm running into this error when attempting 
to build x11-drivers/xf86-input-mouse x11-drivers/xf86-video-vesa (among 

from vesa build log:
checking if DPMSExtension is defined... yes
checking for XORG... no
configure: error: Package requirements (xorg-server >= 1.6 xproto 
fontsproto  randrproto renderproto xextproto) were not met:

Package dri3proto was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `dri3proto.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
Package 'dri3proto', required by 'xorg-server', not found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

It's odd because xorg-server built fine as did dri3proto - so I'm not 
sure why its not being picked up by poudriere when i attempt to build 
these packages.
