The DRI xc trunk including mach64 and other experimental drivers has
been folded into the X.Org tree, and the DRI xc tree is now obsolete.
However, there are reasons why the DRI support of some drivers like
mach64 is still marked as experimental and not built by default; until
those issues have been resolved, it won't be in official packages. As
for the dri-mach64-sid packages, I'm currently struggling to find the
time maintaining the dri-trunk-sid packages that I use myself, draw your
own conclusions about dri-mach64-sid that I don't use myself.
