Why *shouldn't* KDE, GNOME, Firefox/Iceweasel, Tbird, and anything
that requires Mesa/OpenGL, and all of Charles Plessy's scientific
packages be marked do_not_build on 68k/Coldfire & ARM?
If an Amiga (using the unaccelerated fb driver?) is running as an X
Terminal for a powerful, modern box, the Amiga would need to process
the OpenGL commands, no?

Is "common sense" really valid?
For example, it is "common sense" to white-power racists that
whites are superior to blacks, and that those with brown skins
are mud people.
However, that "common sense" is obviously wrong.
