This is a possibility. I haven't read the newer, more restrictive
license being used but under the previous one it was not even legal
for people who don't own a 3dfx card to have the libraries. This
makes it rather difficult to (legally) build packages that depend on

I am perfectly willing to create a mesa+glide package if the licensing
issues are worked out. At the same time I am not willing to spend
any time on those problems as I already have a huge Debian TODO list.
So, someone who wants a mesa+glide package needs to figure out
what we need to do to create a legal copy of mesa+glide and I'll
release one.
