Clear NACK for modifying conffiles. You would also need triggers to
change this if some package is installed/removed later on.

I think primus needs two searchpatch variables (classic and glvnd) and
needs to detect at runtime which one to use. Well, the second one could
be "empty", since it uses system libs instead of driver dependent ones.
How ever this runtime detection could look like.
