as fabio says Mesa is needed, as far as I know. Mesa comes with his own
glx.h and other headers under /usr/include/GL.
The nvidia drivers now have a own version of these header files again.
And if you should have trouble compiling OpenGL applications
try to complie and install glut. the glut which comes with mesa
didn't work well for me!
