the package has not really been touched for about three years. (The
last real upload, a later NMU just changed the package description.)

Afaiui apart from the stuff in the bts theses two changes are also
* build-depend on libglu1-mesa-dev instead of virtual package
* run ./configure with --x-includes=/usr/include

Also if it is simply rebuilt it will be built without DGA or
VidModeSwitch support even if x11proto-xf86vidmode-dev and
x11proto-xf86dga-dev are added to b-d. - ./configure is searching in
vain for -lXxf86vm_pic and -lXxf86dga_pic. The old sid package are
linked (statically) against these libraries.

re-auto-fooing might fix this. But at this point I stopped, since it
occured to me that even more hidden issues might exist and adding
something like this at short point before release might not be a good

Upstream is dead, too.
