installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables XORG_CFLAGS
and XORG_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

According to this page: http://www.openchrome.org/trac/wiki/Installation
Quote:
# Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy and newer includes and uses OpenChrome by default.
However, it looks like only 2D rendering is supported by this driver, so you may be SOL...

Distro-specific for source installation

You will need the following packages to build the driver from sources.

* Debian/Ubuntu/Mint
o type:

sudo apt-get build-dep xserver-xorg-video-openchrome

to get dependency packages:

libdrm-dev libx11-dev x11proto-xf86dri-dev libxext-dev libxvmc-dev x11proto-gl-dev mesa-common-dev
