I managed to build Mesa 3.0 from source on my YDL Performa 6400.  In
order to get it working, though, I had to edit Make-config and turn
off the optimizer in the linux-ppc-so section, otherwise it died with
"internal compiler error"s, but that was the only change necessary.
I'm using Franz Sirl's build of gcc 2.95.1 with his glibc 2.1.2 and
the appropriate binutils, which you can get on  All
the demos seem to work, but given the problems, I'm not sure it will
stand up to heavy usage.

rpmfind shows a Mesa 3.1 rpm:
