Can you do a little test for me?
What happens if you remove the lib after recompiling mesa with the lib? Are you getting segmentation faults or undefined references? Or does just the support for texture compression disappear?
I just tried. Uninstalled it and restarted xdm. Everything keeps working correctly and only S3TC support won't work anymore.
So I guess Mesa/Gallium just tries to load the lib at runtime. That's good; that means anyone can install it and it will "just work".
