System: NetBSD 1.3G NetBSD 1.3G (SHARK) #39: Mon Aug 17 03:31:44 EDT 1998 arm32

	The XFree86 DGA extension more or less works on the Shark.  However,
	it appears that the CyberPro driver in the X server forgets to turn
	off the hardware cursor, and I end up with a big square on the screen
	where the mouse pointer used to be.
	Run a program using the DGA extension (e.g. xmame or xmess compiled
	with DISPLAY_METHOD set to `xf86_dga').  ObTim: Be disappointed that
	it *almost*, but not quite, DTRT.
	Not investigated.

This PR is the responsibility of the portmaster, 
not the GNATS database administrator.
