xlibmesa-gl does depend on libxxf86vm1 on powerpc. Also, libXxf86vm is
merely a runtime dependency of libGL, linking to libGL doesn't require
explicitly linking to libXxf86vm, so xlibmesa-gl-dev doesn't need to
depend on libxxf86vm-dev in any case.

They should be the same everywhere wrt libxxf86vm1, not sure why that's
missing on arm.

Anyway, all of this is irrelevant for the egoboo build failure.
-lXxf86vm is spelt out on the link line, so either it's hardcoded in the
egoboo build (in which case egoboo needs to build-depend on
libxxf86vm-dev), or you need to find out where it's picking it up from.
