>> I care, I just haven't had time to figure out the update issue (libpthreads-stub or something, or cairo, I've forgotten by now, but probably filed a bug for it back in the day). As for mesalib, I left the other branches alone and just updated the latest version to avoid breakage. 7.11 also has some enhancements for 3.1 with regards to the nouveau driver.
I ran into some .la issues earlier (some glib2 issue so all GNOME apps failed to build saying glib2.h is being included in the wrong spot and some g_thread_something is not defined) for something and removed all .la files, but had to then recast packages to regenerate the .la files or some linking and running applications failed. Still going through and recompiling everything to get back the missing files which still cause some failures.
I believe we had a discussion before about just not generated .la files (and others in the Linux community were of the same mind), but I haven't looked into this.
