I'm really mixed about that.  It's somewhat nice for those of use with

for no reason.  Most of that Mesa log is a bunch of uninformative "U"s.

However, that could be decreased significantly if I stopped doing
something bad in the Mesa import.  Right now I just import a whole Mesa
tree, while the build doesn't need the progs, GLU, glut, etc.  I should
figure out how to properly remove the existing files (cvs rm from the
vendor branch, I'm thinking), and add that list of files to remove to
the top of the Mesa tree so that it can be used in the importing
pseudo-script I've got.  Doing that will be more of an improvement to
bandwidth/space usage than all the log avoidance we could ever do.
