I think that /usr/lib/dri is wrong for fglrx (I'm pretty sure it
assumes the old monolith location which we use in BLFS), but I'd like
to switch to using /usr/lib/dri. The only user of the dri drivers is
Xorg in BLFS, but really they are generic drivers for direct access.
That's where xorg-server expects them to be, too. Not that important,
but that's what I'd like to see.
