Navit patch for faster map dragging

I'd like to submit a patch for navit, which changes the map dragging 
rendering method for the gtk interface (which is used on the Neo). 
Before the patch navit rerendered the map on each drag increment, which 
was too slow on the neo. Now it simply repositions the rendered pixmap 
and does the rendering of the map as soon as the drag is finished. In 
addition the text rendering has been improved a bit (there is still 
room for improvement though, i.e. caching rendered glyph bitmaps). 
Please find two patches attached: The patch for the navit source (as of 
SVN revision 1255) and a openembedded patch, which changes the 
buildsystem to build from SVN. For your convenience I uploaded an ipk
