Fix gbm compile without dri

Tested with mesa3d 10.2-rc1, configure options used:
--disable-glx --disable-xa --disable-static --enable-shared-glapi --with-gallium-drivers=swrast --disable-dri --without-dri-drivers --enable-opengl --enable-gbm --enable-egl --with-egl-platforms=drm --enable-gles1 --enable-gles2

configure summary:

        OpenGL:          yes (ES1: yes ES2: yes)
        OpenVG:          no

        OSMesa:          no
        GLX:             no

        EGL:             yes
        EGL platforms:   drm
        EGL drivers:

        llvm:            no

        Gallium:         yes
        Target dirs:
        Winsys dirs:     sw
        Driver dirs:     galahad identity noop rbug softpipe trace
        Trackers dirs:

        Shared libs:     yes
        Static libs:     no
        Shared-glapi:    yes

mesa3d compiles without errors, but other apps needing mesa3d fail to compile, like xbmc 12.3:

checking for main in -lEGL... no
configure: error: Could not find a required library. Please see the README for your platform.

snippet from xbmc config.log:

configure:19532: checking for main in -lEGL

The attached patch fixes the problem.

Have you tried using EGL with the mentioned config/patch ?

AFAICS both gbm backends require DRI, thus in your case you're building only an empty libgbm library which does not provide much functionality on it's own.

If you want a gallium based swrast + opengl, egl etc. I would drop the "disable-dri" part.

Meanwhile I'll prep a patch that errors out on --enable-gbm --disable-dri.
Comment 2 Emil Velikov 2014-05-10 01:11:10 UTC
As mentioned previously, building gbm without dri i.e. without any backends serves little benefit. With the following commit we'll avoid that error-ing at configure time.

    configure: error out if building GBM without dri
    Both backends require --enable-dri, and building an empty libgbm
    makes little to no sense. Error out at configure to prevent the
    user from shooting themselves in the foot.
