mesa package should provide /usr/bin/glxinfo.

I'm using testing repo on my Archlinux x86_64 with multilib.

I have /usr/bin/glxinfo32 that is provided by lib32-mesa (7.8.2). I could see that the same package in multilib-testing provides it as well. But mesa (for i686 or x86_64) doesn't provide any binaries in /usr/bin.

For both architectures the 'stable' mesa package (7.8.2) provides this program.

P.S. This program is used by gnome-shell.
This task depends upon
