You should probably be using XFree86 4.x, which means the only thing the
two mesa packages provide you are libglut, which I don't think has
Our Mesa packages really need to get cleaned up I think. I have
split-out ports for libglut and mesa-demos from 5.0.2 ready, I think,
and I'm working on updating mesagl to 5.0.2 and making it only build for
XFree86 3.3.x users. In the process, I'll update the USE_MESAing ports
to point to libglut if necessary, update USE_MESA to point to mesagl,
and retire Mesa3 unless there are objections. Hopefully I'll have time
to do this after the ports freeze ends.
