Yes. We are looking for a solution for this. I guess this is a
pacman limitation. Afaik pacman can resolve replaces only on -Su

If nobody shows a real solution we can either move Mesa pretty quickly
to extra resolving this. This will for sure trigger some bugs for the
users. Or we use an ugly workaround: when a chroot build fails move the
dependency array from the top of the PKGBUILD to the package() function
