Well, I did now (thanks). I checked out that branch, built mesa/drm, built mesa from git source, and finally rebuilt radeonhd (with its r6xx.. branch) from source. NO JOY, I still get an empty /dev/dri directory. Do I have to build the entire X server from source?

bugmenot, would you care to describe how you got to the point you did?
