[opensuse-xorg] Mesa/Gallium3D: enabling build flags for XvMC & VDPAU state trackers

Not sure if this is the appropriate list to write too -- I realize that Mesa falls outside of Xorg, though its heavily related to some of the xorg elements.

Anyway, given the absence of /usr/lib64/ and /usr/lib64/vdpau/ from the package provided by either the repos for 12.1 or factory, it appears that Mesa isn't being compiled with the build flags being enabled for the XvMC & VDPAU state trackers. Rather obviously (from my missing files mention above) I'm looking to use these features with the r600g driver for an AMD video adapter.

The XvMC state tracker is strictly MPEG1/2 decode support. The VDPAU state tracker, as well, currently only supports MPEG1/2 decode, though (hopefully) this will eventually be extend to support other formats. While MPEG2 decode support might seem rather pedestrian to some, it is beneficial to many others (Example: the ATSC digital TV system uses MPEG2 formatting for channels streams). In addition, users of hardware supported by the r300g and nouveau drivers would also be able to make use of the state trackers.

Is there any reason why mesa isn't being built with those features enabled ? Or, more to the point, could they be enabled for the mesa package in factory so that users can take advantage of them (if they so choose and/or is useful to them)?
