It seems like either libggi or svgalib are the way to go for a software
renderer (which AT '41 has), and Mesa is the way to go for hardware.

What is the current status of hardware support via Mesa? I know that 3Dfx
has been supported for a long time, but what about ATI Rage 128 or nVidia
Riva TNT?
