Thanks for the info.
It also seemed to be working for me too but I cannot fully ensure you that it was OK because I use a different version of mesa with my X server (the GLX of XMing through SSH forwarding)...

In facts, my problem came from the mesa's GL/gl.h header (I had the same errors after the update of mesa) which does not supports a specific macro and makeflags combination. It was not related to a specific version.

As I have "finished" my Qt 5.1.1 packaging, I will make a pull request on nixpkgs containing the fix (on the current mesa version used, not the latest) soon. I am also planning to push the fix upstream ;-)
