   * TODO: more mips weirdness; somehow BuildHtmlManPages is getting set to YES
 .
   * patch #000_post_xf-4_2_0:
     - include DPMS fix for r128 driver (thanks to Stuart Anderson for pulling
       the patch over to xf-4_2-branch)
   * patch #000_stolen_from_HEAD:
     - Fix SEGV in 3dfx DRI driver. (Alan Hourihane)
     - Fix enabling of i810 DRI when XvMC is disabled (#5208, Matthew Sottek,
       Intel).
   * patch #000_stolen_from_HEAD_nv_driver:
     - Refence the "nv" driver.  PPC and Alpha users should test this.
       Especially to see if this solves the problem with color expansion hangs.

     devices (i.e., only read above 1MB) (might fix #107311)
   * patch #600: new; patch from Guido Guenther to fix some newport driver
