Yes. I found the file as libX11.so.6.2.0 which I recopied omitting '.6.2.0'
and entered it as LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/libX11.so and ran clean install again.
Now also it failed but asked for another file again at the endpoint:
----------------------------------------------------
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lz
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [star] Error 1
FAILED/home/clawuser/mesa/star/test
FAILED
/home/clawuser/mesa/star
./build_and_test FAILED
-----------------------------------------------
I checked that this binary file was there and so with LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/bin/ld
I ran install again.  But the result was the same. So what is this -lz?
As i did not find it what next?

Can you find where the libX11.so file resides?
