IIRC I built mesa with 3.0. I'll take a look at the patches. I also just
realised that I didn't run the X server with LD_LIBRARY_PATH set... is
that a problem, or is it just the clients that need the llvmpipe
libGL.so.1? Sorry for the dumb question, but my understanding of how all
the different bits of mesa/dri fit together is rather poor...
