No, if you have introduced the powervr virtual package, then libegl
should not directly depend on ti-gfx, but instead libegl should depend
on powervr, which itself will depend on ti-gfx.

Generally speaking, I think this introduction of the powervr virtual
package is a bit unfortunate for now. Your ti-gfx package was almost
ready for merging, and now it's no longer the case. We should stop
making further feature additions, and focus on getting ti-gfx merged.
Later on, *when* a second PowerVR package appears, it would have been
time to do the necessary work.

But well, now that you've starting doing it, I guess it doesn't make
sense to go backward and remove it again. But then please do it

 * PATCH 1: add the virtual powervr package, with the necessary changes
   to libegl.mk and libgles2.mk, to add the libegl -> powervr and
   libgles2 -> powervr dependencies.

 * PATCH 2: add the ti-gfx package, with the necessary change to
   powervr.mk to add the powervr -> ti-gfx dependency.

Other than that, I think the package is ready now.
