Are any of these required by any graphics or desktop packages?

Qt: depends on Qt 4, EOL in 2015
Cogl: depends on Cogl, unmaintained since 2016
BeOS: unsupported by Meson
OS/2: unsupported by Meson, last known built for Cairo 1.12 (2006)
DRM: science experiment, broken for at least 10 years

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
