Are you sure it wasn't the GLUT library that was missing? Xorg and XFree                             
both come with complete Mesa included.

The standard location for the OpenGL libraries as per the Linux/OpenGL                               
ABI specification is /usr/lib. Xorg/XFree in their self-centered world                               
got it wrong as usual.
