Normally, it should build without modification, since /lib is symlinked to /usr/lib. If you can't build, it probably means you have a problem with your filesystem hierarchy. Nonetheless, I edited my PKGBUILD in order to reflect the change, as it only applies to Arch.

After the last update that makes that /lib is a simlink (at least, I think it's because of that) the package doesn't compile on linux-ck-pentm. I had to edit Makefile to make it work: I changed
KSRC=/lib/modules/`uname -r`/build
to
KSRC=/usr/src/linux-`uname -r`/
I don't know if there is a better solution, but this worked for me.

@ismaelvc: the driver is already written, it was a figure of speech. :)
Nonetheless, it's in a real bad state, abandoned and incomplete. Actually, you don't need it (and the DRI drivers neither) in order to launch a X session. When X doesn't detect a screen, it's sometimes caused by a priority problem in the Xorg video driver choice. So, you should mention the particular driver you want to use in xorg.conf (as explained in the wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Mach64).

Anyway, DRI is disabled on the xf86-video-mach64 package from [extra]. If you want to try the DRI driver, you have to rebuild xf86-video-mach64 with --enable-dri and build mach64-dri from the PKGBUILD: http://pastebin.com/QgEk4CqT

I'm not sure, but I have done some test, I absolutely need this packages for X to detect the screen: I need both xf86-video-mach64 and xf86-video-ati as well as ati-dri, I don't know but I suppose the dri part is being provided by ati-dri, am I correct? I don't know how to write a driver, but maybe in the future lol, thanks again!

Updated sources to build with linux 3.4.

@ismaelvc: the DRM module is the missing piece of software between the graphical hardware and the DRI driver in Mesa. The DRI is supposed to be OS-agnostic, so if you want direct rendering on your OS, you have to write a driver for the kernel in order to deal with OpenGL operations sent by the DRI.

I wasn't able to build guys got this error; (but recently installed it in chakra with aur2ccr, before the mach64-dri removal from their repos)

Would you recomend me to try building also the mach64-dri with the PKGBUILD trya linked to. Or what would you suggest, I have had no problem with my arch install, but I don't really know much about driver related stuff. What is the purpose of this drm module, as far as I understand it porvides opengl right? I have an old laptop vaio with ati rage mobility agp2.

Thanks in advance!

OK thanks a lot for your explainations and the tip. That's really the Arch Way: we still have a choice =:)
Keep the good work..

It's not really a big deal, Mesa never worked well with mach64 chips, you've got Composite and a high-res 24-bit display thanks to the good quality Xorg driver, which doesn't require this DRM module. Nevertheless, it's always possible to get the PKGBUILD for the previous branch of Mesa in order to build the old DRI drivers: http://projects.archlinux.org/svntogit/packages.git/tree/trunk?h=packages/mesa&id=aa3114cc6d0ea5ad48ecf9a3f0df94a8980222c5
