Typically, there are two major providers of libGL (both native and Linux
flavors): linux-*-dri ports *or* nvidia-driver, depending on what gfx card
you have).  Now the problem here that linux-*-dri ports install *both*
libGL and libGLU, while nvidia-driver installs just libGL (which is
perfectly fine, since only libGL must directly interact with hardware
via kernel module, for example).  Recently bsam@ committed linux-f10-libGLU
port with allowed me to port WorldOfGoo; previously, it was impossible
without ugly hacks, since I use nVidia card + drivers, which conflict
with linux-*-dri (the latter was the only provider of libGL for f10 until

Ideally, any port that needs libGL and/or libGLU should depend on libGLU
*and* either libGL *or* nvidia-driver.  Ports that depend on linux-*-dri
to get these libs are very likely to drag conflicts sooner or later
(this is especially true for nVidia cards owners).

Perhaps Boris can shed more light on the subject.

./danfe (speaking mainly from nvidia-driver maintainer POV).
