Gack, well I feel dumb - I just forgot it was a parallel build and it
might actually be an error from a different command. Doing the build
without -j shows it's a different command failing, that one has -lva-x11
and -lva-glx but not -lva . With all three, the command succeeds. D'oh!
Thanks for the reminder.
