No, there should not be a link from /usr/include/X11 ->

However, I guess there is a bug in the configure script.  At that point
configure has already found the X11 include files, but then it doesn't
use them (see around line 1445 of `configure.in' for all of the
directories searched for X11 header files).  I'll fix when I get the

Hmm, wxGTK doesn't use this information anyway (no reference to
HAVE_X11_XKBLIB_H in the sources).

It fails for the same reasons as the test for <X11/XKBlib.h>.

I suppose it would be nice if there was a WANT_OPENGL knob.
I'll add one.

That's a quickie fix.  I'll try to see what is wrong with the
configure script so we can send the fix back to the author.

One would have to include dependencies for Mesa as well, which
is why I'll wrap such with a WANT_OPENGL knob.
