  Ahah, I needed to have libglide3 installed, instead of libglide2.

  It seems the libglide2 description explicitly mentinos the Banshee:

  Description: Graphics library for 3Dfx Voodoo based cards
  This package allows you to use the 3D functions of cards based on
  3dfx Interactive, Inc's Voodoo 2, Voodoo Banshee, and Voodoo 3
  chipsets.  You should install it if you have such a card.

  Goody, I get to file my first bug report!

  Thanks very much to all who helped me sort this out, especially
