I just tossed that in because I needed a shlibs line.

What, specifically, do you suggest, again?  Please show me the exact format
so I don't screw it up.  :)

Also, I'm starting to think I need to pull libOSMesa into its own package,
because the virtual package libgl1 can only be expected to provide libGL,
not libGLU, libOSMesa, or anything else.
