tl;dr: make mesa-utils M-A: allowed in order to be able to depend on it as

Hi! libqt5gui5 now ships a script in order to detect wether users have an
OpenGL2 compatible video card. It case they don't it sets up an environment
variable to let Qt now that it should use rasterization instead.

The script uses mesa-utils' glxinfo package for this.

Problem arises that libqt5gui5 is M-A: same, but ends up depending on

If mesa-utils gets marked as M-A: allowed then we can make libqt5gui5
depend upon mesa-utils:any, ie, any arch' version of mesa-utils will satisfy
the dependency.

I would highly appreciate if you can at least reply if you are OK or not with
the idea, as we currently have a broken M-A libqt5gui5 and would like to
take the necessary steps to solve this.

Thanks a lot in advance, Lisandro.
