The intention was that the lines
"SYSMODS := $(filter-out vboxvideo_drv%,$(SYSMODS))"
"SYSMODS := $(filter-out vboxmouse_drv%,$(SYSMODS))"
in the src/VBox/Additions/x11/vbox[video|mouse]/Makefile.kmk should do
just this. Do they not work as intended?

I took a brief look and it probably merits a deeper one (so still not
forgotten, but still waiting). Your patch duplicates a few definitions
and things from Mesa headers inside the source file. This makes me
wonder whether we could safely drop the dependency on those headers
altogether (system or bundled no matter). Since I didn't write the code
though I will need to find the time to look at it properly.

They aren't used on recent Linux systems, but we also support building
on older ones. Here a patch to simply remove them from Fedora's
distributed version of the source code might make sense if you really
can't live with it. Unless we were to take the decision to publish a
bundle-sanitised second copy of the source (this is just a thought on my
part, so don't hold your breath waiting for it to happen yet).
