OK. 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 v7.0). 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 -> //usr/lib32/opengl/xorg-x11/include/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 /usr/lib32/opengl/xorg-x11/include/glxproto.h damned tmp # grep xGLXQueryHyperpipeNetworkSGIXReq /usr/lib32/opengl/xorg-x11/include/glxproto.h damned tmp # Very curious...
