I believe Dave has already explained this to you, but nobody has
mentioned it here.

What you are supposed to do is install the new nouveau driver, which
requires a new libdrm. So, just compile both libdrm, and nouveau, to a
sandbox, say /opt/new-nouveau, and then in /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Section "Files"
ModulePath "/opt/new-nouveau/lib/xorg/modules"
ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
EndSection

That should do it. No frankensteinian F13 packaging stuff, and no mess
with the system's /usr/lib/.

Cheers.
