1.9.94 is available from 'experimental' shouldn't need to build
it. An AMD64 version showed up yesterday, I believe.

However, I can't speak directly about your particular generation of
Intel graphics hardware--I only have experience with the i830 generation
(855GM) and the i965 generation, both of which work more or less
perfectly with the latest intel modesetting driver, including
suspend-to-RAM on my laptop.
