The diffs to the ref_gl/gl_rmain.c will break other arches (Most nostably 
Solaris/Sparc).. Is there any other way to do this? Are there many 
Vooddoo1/2 still in use? I thought most people used GLX and ATI/NVidia

They cannot scare me with their empty spaces
Between stars - on stars where no human race is
I have it in me so much nearer home
To scare myself with my own desert places.       - Robert Frost
