[Mesa-dev] [PATCH] configure.ac: Disable intel gallium drivers by default

They're not maintained and gets in the way when loading EGL drivers.
The doc string even says it's disabled by default.

I think it makes sense to disable the intel gallium drivers as they're not
maintained and not in use anywhere.  If nothing else, they're certainly
experimental, and as such it makes sense to require an opt-in before
compiling them.

Jakob didn't like the wholesale disabling of gallium for intel, but preferred
a per-state tracker option (to disable gallium egl from loading intel
gallium drivers, for example).  I just don't think it makes sense to build
the gallium intel drivers by default if they're not supposed to be
used anywhere.
