Not until I make one.  I've gotta get to a @$@#! post office and mail this
package to 3Dfx (slink and some documentation) because every place I
_THOUGHT_ could mail it so far has told me they don't do that.  Argh.

I have a libglide2-v2 package made and as soon as I get the license mess
straightened out (glide will unfortunately remain non-free) I'll package
-vg, -v3, and -vr versions.  I'm still working out what I'll do with
libglide-dev, but that's an issue on MY end that has to be resolved before
I can build glide-using packages.  I just haven't had enough time to
devote to really pick apart their rpm to build a debian/ tree for it yet.

Once that's all done I'll put a glide-using mesa in non-free--I'm
confident that I can still get all this done before freeze (pending of
course that I can get to the aforementioned post office this century..)
