Updated to x.org 7.1 (after a couple days of screwing with getting it
built) and got it all started up on this i915 machine, and it still has
the same problem. If I remove the GLX_RGBA from the attributes passed to
glXGetConfig, it finds a visual right with no problems. But adding that
in causes it to not find any at all.
The code I built is the latest bits from both CVS and GIT.
