configuring the intel graphics driver

I could use a bit of help here. 

My system occasionally, not often, but enough to bring me to do
something about it, keeps freezing. Hard lock-ups. This is a known bug
for openSUSE 11.3 and intel video cards. So, I tried some suggestions
and updated my kernel to 2.6.35. Nope. Same prob. I updated Xorg, mesa,
drm, cairo (had to go to Factory for that one). I finally got all the
requirements met as listed on   'Intel Linux Graphics: 2010Q2'
( and I download the intel 2d
driver, since it's newer than what comes with openSUSE, even in Factory
(xorg-x11-driver-video-intel-legacy 2.9.1).

Now, when I go to compile the driver, it errors out on ./configure.
Normally, I can resolve some of this, as most of the time it's
dependencies, but that's not the issue here. It's the flags. So maybe
someone can help me out a bit.

  Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you

  Alternatively, you may set the environment variables XORG_CFLAGS
  and XORG_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
  See the pkg-config man page for more details.*
 Now the part in red is what gets me. So I looked at the ./configure

    ./configure --help`configure' configures xf86-video-intel 2.12.0 to adapt to many kinds of systems.
  Usage: ./configure [OPTION]... [VAR=VALUE]...
  To assign environment variables (e.g., CC, CFLAGS...), specify them as
  VAR=VALUE.  See below for descriptions of some of the useful variables.
  Defaults for the options are specified in brackets.
  -h, --help              display this help and exit
  --help=short        display options specific to this package
  --help=recursive    display the short help of all the included packages
  -V, --version           display version information and exit
  -q, --quiet, --silent   do not print `checking...' messages
  --cache-file=FILE   cache test results in FILE [disabled]
  -C, --config-cache      alias for `--cache-file=config.cache'
  -n, --no-create         do not create output files
  --srcdir=DIR        find the sources in DIR [configure dir or `..']
  Installation directories:
  --prefix=PREFIX         install architecture-independent files in PREFIX
  --exec-prefix=EPREFIX   install architecture-dependent files in EPREFIX
  By default, `make install' will install all the files in
  `/usr/local/bin', `/usr/local/lib' etc.  You can specify
  an installation prefix other than `/usr/local' using `--prefix',
  for instance `--prefix=$HOME'.
  For better control, use the options below.
  Fine tuning of the installation directories:
  --bindir=DIR            user executables [EPREFIX/bin]
  --sbindir=DIR           system admin executables [EPREFIX/sbin]
  --libexecdir=DIR        program executables [EPREFIX/libexec]
  --sysconfdir=DIR        read-only single-machine data [PREFIX/etc]
  --sharedstatedir=DIR    modifiable architecture-independent data [PREFIX/com]
  --localstatedir=DIR     modifiable single-machine data [PREFIX/var]
  --libdir=DIR            object code libraries [EPREFIX/lib]
  --includedir=DIR        C header files [PREFIX/include]
  --oldincludedir=DIR     C header files for non-gcc [/usr/include]
  --datarootdir=DIR       read-only arch.-independent data root [PREFIX/share]
  --datadir=DIR           read-only architecture-independent data [DATAROOTDIR]

  --dvidir=DIR            dvi documentation [DOCDIR]
  --pdfdir=DIR            pdf documentation [DOCDIR]
  --psdir=DIR             ps documentation [DOCDIR]
  Program names:
  --program-prefix=PREFIX            prepend PREFIX to installed program names
  --program-suffix=SUFFIX            append SUFFIX to installed program names
  --program-transform-name=PROGRAM   run sed PROGRAM on installed program names
  System types:
  --build=BUILD     configure for building on BUILD [guessed]
  --host=HOST       cross-compile to build programs to run on HOST [BUILD]
  Optional Features:
  --disable-option-checking  ignore unrecognized --enable/--with options
  --disable-FEATURE       do not include FEATURE (same as --enable-FEATURE=no)
  --enable-FEATURE[=ARG]  include FEATURE [ARG=yes]
  --enable-maintainer-mode  enable make rules and dependencies not useful
  (and sometimes confusing) to the casual installer
  --disable-dependency-tracking  speeds up one-time build
  --enable-dependency-tracking   do not reject slow dependency extractors
  Enable all warnings from compiler and make them
  errors (default: disabled)
  --enable-silent-rules          less verbose build output (undo: `make V=1')
  --disable-silent-rules         verbose build output (undo: `make V=0')
  --enable-static[=PKGS]  build static libraries [default=no]
  --enable-shared[=PKGS]  build shared libraries [default=yes]
  optimize for fast installation [default=yes]
  --disable-libtool-lock  avoid locking (might break parallel builds)
  --disable-dri           Disable DRI support [[default=auto]]
  --enable-video-debug    Enable video debugging support [[default=no]]
  --disable-xvmc          Disable XvMC support [[default=yes]]
  --enable-kms-only       Assume KMS support [[default=no]]
  Optional Packages:
  --with-PACKAGE[=ARG]    use PACKAGE [ARG=yes]
  --without-PACKAGE       do not use PACKAGE (same as --with-PACKAGE=no)
  --with-pic              try to use only PIC/non-PIC objects [default=use
  --with-gnu-ld           assume the C compiler uses GNU ld [default=no]
  Default xorg module directory
  Some influential environment variables:
  CC          C compiler command
  CFLAGS      C compiler flags
  LDFLAGS     linker flags, e.g. -L<lib dir> if you have libraries in a
  nonstandard directory <lib dir>
  LIBS        libraries to pass to the linker, e.g. -l<library>
  CPPFLAGS    (Objective) C/C++ preprocessor flags, e.g. -I<include dir> if
  you have headers in a nonstandard directory <include dir>
  CPP         C preprocessor
  PKG_CONFIG  path to pkg-config utility
  C compiler flags for GEN4ASM, overriding pkg-config
  linker flags for GEN4ASM, overriding pkg-config
  XORG_CFLAGS C compiler flags for XORG, overriding pkg-config
  XORG_LIBS   linker flags for XORG, overriding pkg-config
  DRM_CFLAGS  C compiler flags for DRM, overriding pkg-config
  DRM_LIBS    linker flags for DRM, overriding pkg-config
  C compiler flags for PCIACCESS, overriding pkg-config
  linker flags for PCIACCESS, overriding pkg-config
  XEXT_CFLAGS C compiler flags for XEXT, overriding pkg-config
  XEXT_LIBS   linker flags for XEXT, overriding pkg-config
  DRI_CFLAGS  C compiler flags for DRI, overriding pkg-config
  DRI_LIBS    linker flags for DRI, overriding pkg-config
  C compiler flags for XVMCLIB, overriding pkg-config
  linker flags for XVMCLIB, overriding pkg-config
  Use these variables to override the choices made by `configure' or to help
  it to find libraries and programs with nonstandard names/locations.

This is what I have to work with. Basically, it doesn't know where
xorg-server is.

As you can see, I have it installed. Now how do I let this intel driver
package know where xorg-server is?

Thank you. It pointed me in the right direction. I was also talking
with the developers in #intel-gfx as well. 
Here is what I worked out. For 50-device.conf, I used 
  Section "Device"
  Identifier "Default Device"
  Driver "intel"

The developers in #intel-gfx think that our xorg-x11-intel-legacy fork
maybe causing the problem.
I also backed down my xorg, to what came with 11.3, and added the devel
I was then able to compile the xf86-video-intel-2.12.0 driver and
verified that that is what I am running. 
The way to verify it is in Xorg.0.log. [    24.219]  compiled for
1.8.0, module version = 2.12.0 As you can see, I have 2.12.0 running.
I'd like to make an rpm for the xf86-video-intel-2.12.0 driver. Get it
up in the build service. Here is a spec file I found.

I was going to build a current driver when I saw this; Now this says 2 things. 1) we only need
xorg-x11-driver-video and 2) a lot of us are trying to use the legacy
driver. Line 69 of that spec file there says  Source45:
This is the exact driver I compiled.
