Packages that provide DRI infrastructure should provide a virtual "dri" package, so that applications that require hardware accelerated OpenGL to work correctly (mainly games) could set its "requires" properly. lib32 versions should provide "lib32-dri" virtual package.

Considers: intel-dri, ati-dri, nouveau-dri, lib32-intel-dri, lib32-ati-dri and lib32-nouveau-dri.
