Yeah, I synchronized all the lists I could find during the autoconfig work.

DRI is in the list because that's the correct thing to do.  DRI support should 
be loaded if it's available, and if it doesn't work that's just a bug that 
needs fixing.  DRI has historically been the first thing people turn off 
whenever there's any question of stability, and that's the wrong place to be 
in because it means the bugs _stay_ unfixed.

We've had accelerated 3d support for eight years now; maybe it's time we made 
it work.
