Yes, there are still a few needed for the displist-shading calls. The  
dependency already existed... it's a known weakness, and my changes  
didn't create new dependencies (to other modules).

For the shaders stuff I didn't have to change a bit in the makefiles...  
I'll ask around at IRC today to find out what happened.

My idea too! :)
