Umm, a google around indicates that they don't support GLX_SGIX_pbuffer &
fbconfig, but offer GLX_ATI_render_texture instead:
I believe that Fred has got a cross-platform render-texture library to work
with Map in order to extend headless mode to windows - hopefully this will be
more robust than the code that I wrote and work across a greater range of cards
on Linux as well. I'll make up another release candidate when it's added.
