Humm, some applications uses Xft1 so we will need libXft.so.1
for compatibility. We need oldlibs/libxft1 package.

4.2.1-4pre5v1 provides xlibmesa-gl-dev, xlibmesa-glu-dev and
So, If xlibmesa4-gl-dev, xlibmesa4-glu-dev and xlibosmesa4-dev will
not co-exists with current (4.2.1-4pre5v1 and probably 4.2.1-5)
xlibmesa-gl-dev, xlibmesa4-glu-dev and xlibosmesa-dev, I think better
`4' would be dropped from their names.

Perhaps we need dummy xlibs package (it depends these
library packages) to migrate from old environment.
