The problem is that sbuild will, as I understand it, only try the first
item and then FTBFS if it can't find it. So anything build-depending on
xlibmesa-gl | libgl1 will fail on the autobuilders when xlibmesa-gl goes
away. Realistically we should just fix sbuild but that's not likely to
happen any time soon.
