Does 'make' and 'make install' complete successfully? If 'make' worked
then you should be all set. If it said "glitz-glx: yes" then you should
have a rendertest_glitz_glx executable in src after typing make.

You don't want to type 'make rendertest'. I'm surprised it's actually
compiling something when you type this. No rendertest binary should be
built only binaries named rendertest_xxx, where xxx is a specific output
backend like glitz-glx, xcb or pixman.

If you want to build just a specific binary e.g 'make
rendertest_glitz_glx' should work as well.
