The glide(4) driver implements 2D support for 3dfx Voodoo1 and Voodoo2 cards 
using the Glide2 library.  As far as I can tell the only platform where it 
was ever built by default was x86 Debian, and this is probably patched out in 
current Debian patchsets.

Unfortunately it is impossible to build without the glide2 headers installed, 
and impossible to test without a working build of glide2 (currently 
unmaintained) and one of the supported cards.  As a result no one has written 
a build system for it yet.  If no one contributes a build system for it, 
there will be no xf86-video-glide module in 7.0.  However, these cards will 
still be supported in 7.0 through the voodoo(4) driver, though with no 3D
