I made it to compile and run MESA-20 (and some of its dependencies)
from provided references on 12.1-RELEASE :-) But I can see no change
in picture quality.. I noticed some troubles with Xinerama
(multi-monitor) on Enlightenment but it worked fine on Xfce4. Because
other software seems to depend on mesa I have rolled back to version

I have recompiled the MESA-DRI 18 port with VAPPI and VDPAU support
enabled I hope that can speed up anything :-)

Thanks! :-)
