Hm. You know, I think I just copied what libdrm-intel1 does, except I added
powerpc as Nouveau works on that arch. I can't actually remember why
libdrm-intel1 was relaxed like that though?

I think we do. I wonder though - in the past I've found that Nouveau is
rather too dependent on having an up-to-date libdrm; I fear we'd have to use
some random (and oldish) git version of Nouveau which kinda misses the point
of throwing it to the masses. What do you think?
