I figured out what happened.  I installed the Nvidia binary drivers.  It
overwrote:

-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root     652 Mar 22 09:36 libGL.la
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root  485260 Mar 22 09:36 libGL.so.1.0.7174
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root 7626156 Mar 22 09:36 libGLcore.so.1.0.7174
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root    2320 Mar 22 09:36 libnvidia-tls.so.1.0.7174

and made the links.  We definitely do not have to mention the Mesa
drivers.  The problem is now personal.  I can either have the GL
secreensavers or the hardware accelerated GL apps, but not both at the
same time. :(
