It is nice, but they assume that a frame buffer is available on the
system, the GGI acceleration features are not even close to what the
low end Indy machines have, they are too general acceleration
features.  

We will support the direct rendering interface on Linux/SGI, which
will take care of using the nice SGI hardware.
