Startup doesn't find OpenGL drivers on Arch Linux

      Steps to Reproduce

      Trying to open the viewer.

      Actual Behavior

      The start script crashes on Arch Linux because it can't load drivers.

      libGL error: unable to load driver: i965_dri.so
      libGL error: driver pointer missing
      libGL error: failed to load driver: i965
      libGL error: unable to load driver: swrast_dri.so
      libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast
      The program 'do-not-directly-run-secondlife-bin' received an X Window System error.
      This probably reflects a bug in the program.
      The error was 'BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)'.
        (Details: serial 33 error_code 2 request_code 155 minor_code 3)
        (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
         that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
         To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
         option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
         backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
      *** Bad shutdown ($LL_RUN_ERR). ***

      This is because the drivers are actually found in


      and not where the script is searching for them.

      A simple fix has been attached in the form of a patch.

      Expected Behavior

      The viewer opening.
