[opensuse-buildservice] links from games:libs to openSUSE:Factory

I've seen that many libraries from games:libs are actually links to the
equivalent of openSUSE:Factory.

As this helps us always having the latest of the lib available in games:libs,
it also imposes a big risk of instability on older products. So for the moment,
SDL_ttf for example does not build for older Distros (SUSE 10.0 for example)
because of missing BuildRequires.

Of course they can all be adjusted in the Project-Config of SUSE:10.0. But is
this what we want? Do we want to offer games:* in a 'stable and tested' way or
do we want to offer whatever bleeding edge we get in Factory?

I'm actually in favour of the stable part. The ones that want factory, will
likely go for installing factory.

Comments are highly appreciated.
