Here's a quick update if anybody is wondering about the current
situation with supertuxkart and irrlicht:
- irrlicht is in the sponsor queue right now, waiting to be reviewed
and sponsored 
- supertuxkart 0.7.3 doesn't actually build with the latest release of
irrlicht as suggested by upstream.
I'll regularly update #634019  as I make further progress on
packaging supertuxkart. If you've worked with irrlicht before and
would like to help out and try to get stk 0.7.3 building properly with
irrlicht 1.7.3, please see upstream bug report .
