#24392: mesa 7.8.1 broken (glxinfo and glxgears)

 I don't know if it is the 7.8.1 update or the changes induced by 10.6.3,
 but my mesa and several `MacPorts` ports all stopped working! These
 include `pymol` and the `R` package `rgl`. (They all worked before the
 10.6.3 and `mesa` update.)

 More telling, however, is that I have `mesa @7.8.1_0+hw_render` installed.
 Trying the included `glxinfo` or `glxgears` utilities gives me the

 X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for
   Major opcode of failed request:  0 ()
   Value in failed request:  0xffffffff
   Serial number of failed request:  16
   Current serial number in output stream:  16

 Through some heroic debugging of other people's modules, I discovered that
 the `X` calls seem to be working fine, but the failures occur with the
 rather critical `glXCreateContext` function.

 Am I the only person who is seeing this?

 I'll try turning off the `hw_render` option and see if that helps...
