I had this problem but I didn't use mesa. I have an Nvidia graphics card 
so I installed the  Nvidia drivers. glx.h was installed as part of that. 
I don't know what the answer is if you don't have an Nvidia card. 
Tuxracer looks good but there's not a lot of it and the gameplay's a bit 
one dimensional. It's just steering through a maze. It reminds me of a 
short section of SuperMario64 from about five years ago
