Default Card is Radeon R200, but Mesa builds Gallium R300; HELP!

Now what? Ignore what you see on
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/xorg-config.xml and
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/ati-faq.xml about an
"ATI Technologies Inc RV280 [Radeon 9200 PRO]" not needing a binary blob.
It does require the R200 blob from radeon-ucode. If the blob isn't
there, the bootup will delay for a minute, time out, and then continue.
If the R200 blob is in /lib/firmware/radeon, it'll load, regardles of
what i put in the kernel setup; e.g.


[d530][root][~] dmesg | grep R200
[ 0.277947] [drm] Loading R200 Microcode

notwitstanding that the kernel is set up like so...
[d530][root][~] zcat /proc/config.gz | grep -i r300
CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE="radeon/R300_cp.bin"

The question is... how do I force Mesa

(EE) AIGLX error: dlopen of /usr/lib/dri/r200_dri.so failed (/usr/lib/dri/r200_dri.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)
(EE) AIGLX: reverting to software rendering
(II) AIGLX: Screen 0 is not DRI capable
(II) AIGLX: Loaded and initialized /usr/lib/dri/swrast_dri.so
