/usr/bin/makedepend is provided by xutils-dev :

sudo apt-get install xutils-dev

That did fix the current error but theres another error after that. I'll just give up installing it for the time being. Thanks for your help.

Well, Mesa is already installed in all Ubuntus.

Example, Ubuntu 11.04 : Version 7.10.2
http://packages.ubuntu.com/natty/libgl1-mesa-dev

The command : 'dpkg --get-selections | grep mesa'
.. will probably show :
libgl1-mesa-dri , libgl1-mesa-glx , libglu1-mesa.

Other "mesa" packages :
sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-swx11-dev libglu1-mesa-dev

The complete list with all parts of Mesa 7.10.2 :
http://packages.ubuntu.com/source/natty/mesa

..
