Yeah, this is a known bug I kept forgetting to fix completely by accident.
Fortunately, the 7.0 packages don't suffer from this problem as their
xlibmesa* packages are all just empty transitional packages. Those will be
uploaded in due time (like within a week if all goes according to my
nefarious plans) so this should cease to be an issue.

Yeah, Erinn Clark wanted to gut me for that one, but again, since the
packages are going away it's a non-issue.
