The build directions recommend disabling gallium in order to get intel
working properly. However I've not gotten a successful build with
--disable-gallium added. Unless someone has a suggestion, I'm going to
try a mesa without --disable-gallium. Maybe there's a better solution
anyway. We will need gallium enabled in mesa for Radeon and Nouveau, so
hopefully there's a better way to solve this for intel.

This is the stock ubuntu cairo package with gl enabled. Untested.
Brand new package for this component. Also untested.
Cribbed from xorg-edgers out of laziness. Natty has 1.0.5 already
packaged now, I may pull that in instead. Should work fine.

Those are just cruft leftovers from a packaging of wayland I did a year
ago. Ignore them.
