I successfully installed Mesa with "yum install Mesa*" and downloaded MesaDemos-7.8.tar.gz archive.
Now I try follow instructions from "Mesa3d.org -> Download / Insall -> Compiling and Installing -> 1.5 Running the demos",
but in progs/demos there is only *.c files, when I try to compile them,
I get many similar errors like:

gears.c:(.text+0x54): undefined reference to `glShadeModel'  

I guess that this is very noob question, and I understand that there is very simple solution, but I haven't any idea...
In beggining of the file there are all necessary #includes:

#include <math.h>  
#include <stdlib.h>  
#include <stdio.h>  
#include <string.h>  
#include <GL/glut.h>  

So I have some questions:
Is there some Mesa forum on the web?
Is there some compiled demos?
Is there some site with well described examples of Mesa using?
What I need for compile those examples?

I have CentOS 5

Thank you for ahead.

So I guess, may be I should use: cc -o gears gears.c -I/usr/local/include -L/usr/local/lib -lMesatk -lMesaGL -lXext -lX11 -lm, but than I get: /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lMesatk – Rodnower Apr 3 '10 at 21:43
    
In demo directory lays Makefile, but when I doing: makem I get error: Makefile:4: ../../configs/current: No such file or directory make: *** No rule to make target `../../configs/current'. Stop. Some one know what I must to do? – Rodnower Apr 4 '10 at 9:31
    
this is sort of programming related, but I don't feel strongly enough about it to migrate it to Stack Overflow. Thank you for following up and answering your own question, rodnower, so others can benefit from this solution. – Jeff Atwood Apr 5 '10 at 4:22

So, this is necessary to do ./configure before all in root Mesa unarchived directory, like described here:
