After installing a version of PCLinuxOS 2009.1 I have built and successfully installed Mesa 7.2 along with X11-server 1.6.1. I have been able to get some good results on my laptop, which has an ATI Radeon Xpress 1250 card. Graphics look good, yet have had some crashes. I've played two games and one, Chromium, crashed. Also the x11-driver-input-mouse pack compiles but said it had a version mismatch. Fixed that by using version 1.4.0. When I tried to compile libx11 1.1.5 it gave me some errors. I learned that I had to use xproto version 7.0.14 instead of version 7.0.15. So I downgraded that and it compiled fine.
