Utopia repo

Utopia FC5 repository now has never new version of glibc (and the updated deps for glibc…) needed for the new CVS HAL dependency on libvolume_id. This is a good thing as removes a whole chunk of code out of HAL and into a shared library that can be used by other stuff.

Not sure how many people this will affect, but don't run this repo update on an important machine. It all seems to work for me, but test at your peril.

On a related note, the latest g-p-m checks with PolicyKit to prevent the “suspend error: unknown error” if you try to suspend with no (or with a broken) PolicyKit. You'll need to add –disable-policykit to the configure line for now, if you don't use a new HAL or have no desire to test PolicyKit. :-)
