Description

From the IRC:

[15:08:58] <despair86> just need to drop a quick note in here, can't log in atm to chat in #openindiana
[15:10:29] <despair86> but the nvidia OpenGL headers in driver/graphics/nvidia get removed if you have to remove _this_ driver to install an updated driver
[15:11:06] <despair86> i use a GT1030 that requires latest driver, and nvidia stopped shipping these ages ago (which is _why_ they're in the IPS pkg to begin with)
[15:11:56] <despair86> perhaps these headers should be in their own pkg?
[16:00:59] <toasterson> despair86 (IRC): you could also open a ticket in the bug tracker for that.
[16:01:19] <toasterson> The Suggestion does seems logical though.

perhaps these could be moved to a x11/header/nvidia-gl package in IPS? (made a dependent of the legacy driver if using that, or installed separately if using later forceware)

I wonder if we should distribute these headers at all?
Given that vdpau.h and vdpau_x11.h are delivered by libvdpau package and mesa headers should be used to compile GL applications.
