Re: netbsd-5, MesaLib, changing default to X11_TYPE=modular

For a long time, netbsd-5 bulk builds have had a massive number of
failures due to MesaLib.  Really this is due to the base system X11 bits
in netbsd-5 being crufty.  I have thus set X11_TYPE=modular, and many
more packages get built.

Given this, I think we should make netbsd-5 default to X11_TYPE=modular.
But I'm not sure of what other consequences there are - what do others think?

For MesaLib, there are two issues:

* BUILDLINK_API_DEPENDS.dri2proto+= driproto>=2.1 must be defined for building
  MesaLib from pkgsrc, but not defined anywhere.
* BUILDLINK_API_DEPENDS.glproto+= glproto>=1.4.11 must not be defined for the 
  buitin MesaLib is sufficient, but defined in unconditionally.

The first issue break build MesaLib on NetBSD-5.
The second issue introduce unwanted dependency on MesaLib from pkgsrc on 

But such issues are not only for NetBSD-5 but also affect to others.
