Bug#789167: nvidia-legacy-304xx-alternative: alternative for libEGL is missing

Package: nvidia-legacy-304xx-alternative
Version: 304.125-1
Severity: important

glx-alternative-nvidia sets up a slave link for libEGL. The problem is
that nvidia-legacy-304xx-alternative doesn't add this slave link, too.
This way libEGL is completely missing in the running system when
nvidia-legacy-304xx-alternative is selected via update-alternatives.
This leads to many instabilities, e.g. no window decoration in KDE
because kwin is just crashing...

The attached patch, which just adds a slave link to the mesa version of
libEGL, fixes the problem for me. So far everything runs fine, including
3D games. I am not sure if the patch is the correct solution and there
are probably more things to fix (dependencies, etc.) so please consider
the patch just as a first idea...
