Your config.log said

when it tried to link a simple test program to -lGl. Linking resolves
addresses of functions and links together compilation units with these
In this case, it couldnt find the symbol (or function) XDamageAdd. This
should be in libXdamage.so, which should be dynamically linked to
The ldd command displays the dynamic links that an object file (eg
dynamic object/dynamic executable) has, so we now know explicitly what
is being linked to what.

(and sorry, no, I don't know what the actual problem is, but I bet flz
does :)
