The file glxproto.h appears to be incorrect on my machine... I'm not
sure which part of the modularised X this file should be a part of...
But it's not in /var/tmp/portage anywhere after installing
xorg-x11-7.0 and all it's pre-reqs (I went through the process of
removing all my old X version and also all the pre-reqs I know of for

The glxproto.h I do have is

damned tmp # ls -l /usr/include/GL/glxproto.h
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 46 Jan 10 18:32 /usr/include/GL/glxproto.h ->
damned tmp # ls -l /usr/lib32/opengl/xorg-x11/include/glxproto.h
- -r--r--r--  1 root root 71034 Jan  3 23:21
damned tmp # grep xGLXQueryHyperpipeNetworkSGIXReq
damned tmp #

Very curious...
