Thanks to obata@ for fixing MesaLib!  I had given up hope since it's
been broken for so long.

Agreed - with MesaLib fixed, it's likely that netbsd-5 and
X11_TYPE=native is at least mostly ok, or fixable, so I withdraw my
proposal to change it.  (I think we should reconsider the situation on
6/1, though, if bulk builds on netbsd-5 are still showing a lot of
X11-related failures.)
