No, I had freeglut installed.  I can duplicate the problem my moving the
libGL* files out of /usr/local/lib and restore functionality by putting
them back.

OK.  I can work with that.  Right now the issue is whether to mention
mesa at all.  I'm inclined to at least mention it.  I don't know if the
mesa install breaks anything else.  I don't know what to test it with
other than the kde screensavers.
