Wasn't going to mention it until there was actually something worth

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.
